1897-S Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle NGC/PCGS 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 1897 and is graded in Mint State 62 condition. Struck from 90% gold, the Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle denomination was created as a result of the California Gold Rush and the massive amounts of gold introduced into the economy at the time. Out of all 1897-S Liberty Head Double Eagles struck, less than 1% have been graded in MS62 condition. With such a low MS62 population, this Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle is a Condition Rarity. Coins like this 1897-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.
