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."
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.
The $3 Indian Princess Head came into existence after being authorized by the act of February 21, 1853, becoming the only $3 coin ever minted in the United States. The first of this coin series was struck in 1854, but it sadly never grew to popularity with the general public and saw very little circulation. The obverse of this coin features the design of James B. Longacre, depicting the head of an Indian Princess with her hair tightly curling over her neck. Her head is crowned with a circle of feathers, the band of which is inscribed with the word “Liberty.” The reverse features a wreath of tobacco, wheat, corn, and cotton.
