Double Eagles are U.S. $20 gold coins, which served as currency in the United States from 1850 to 1933. Born out of the Gold Rush, these big beautiful one once gold coins were the largest circulating U.S. coin. Gold Liberty Head Double Eagles were minted over a period of six decades until 1907, when President Theodore Roosevelt decided to reform America’s coinage into works of art with the minting of the Saint Gaudens Double Eagle. This ended in 1933 when his fifth cousin, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, signed the Gold Recall Act (Executive Order 6102) which made it illegal to own gold.
The Finest Rare Coin Values in the World …and More!
Monaco specializes in Type-I Liberty Head Gold Double Eagles, minted from 1850-1866, in the formative years of our nation, from the Gold Rush through the Civil War. Type-II issues (1866-1877) with the motto “In God We Trust,” and Type-III gold (1877-1907) with the denomination “Twenty Dollars,” are also popular choices. The Saint Gaudens Double Eagle (1907-1933) is considered the most beautiful coin in the world, and is highly prized as it appeals to both collectors and investors alike. Double Eagles are by far the most recognizable collectors’ coins in the world, and Monaco has one of the largest and finest inventories available.

Owning a significant investment in popular, genuinely rare and historically significant rare coins, has generated great rewards for both collectors and investors. Because of their limited supply and increased demand, rare coins have traditionally been a great investment and private storage of wealth for the financially astute. They play an important part of a well-diversified portfolio and may offer stability and liquidity as a tangible asset that is private, portable, and profitable over time. Rare coins offer you the best of both worlds… the beauty, romance and fun of rare coin collecting, and the rewards of a historically sound investment.
