1898-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 1898 and is graded Mint State 62. Out of all 1898-S Liberty Head Gold Double Eagles struck, less than 1% have been graded in Mint State 62 condition. With such a low MS62 population, this coin is considered a tremendous Condition Rarity.

Coins like this 1898-S Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle became increasingly rare 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.
