1893-S Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle MS62

Description

The Twenty Dollar Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle, designed by James B. Longacre, was minted from 1850 to 1907. This example was struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1893 and is graded in Mint State 62 condition. Out of all 1893-S Liberty Head Gold Double Eagles minted, significantly less than 1% have been graded in MS62 condition. With a minuscule mintage of only 996,175 and an even lower MS62 population, this 1893-S Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle is known as a tremendous Absolute and Condition Rarity. 

Coins like this 1893-S Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle became increasingly rarer as a result of President Franklin D. Roosevelt signing Executive Order 6102 in 1933. This order sought to revive the American economy by recalling circulating American gold coins to be melted down.
