The double eagle is a United States gold coin with an official worth of $20. The double eagles were in commission from 1850 until 1933. Since the double eagle had twice the value of the American Gold Eagle, it was named the "double eagle."
The 1933 gold double eagle coin is a United States 20-dollar gold coin. It was originally issued from 1907 until 1932, with 445,500 double eagles minted with the 1933 date. However, not one of these 1933 double eagle coins was released into circulation due to currency laws during the Great Depression. President Franklin D. Roosevelt had tried to stabilize the economy by taking the U.S. off the gold standard. People were even required to hand over any gold coins they owned.
Originally thought to be a counterfeit, this 1854-S that was recently graded by NGC has become 1 of 4 known to man. What makes this coin so special is that it has one of the lowest mintages of any regular issue made for circulation in the U.S. In addition, it is one of the first coins that came out of the California Gold Rush from the U.S. Mint in San Francisco.
