Description

The Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle, designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, was minted from 1907 to 1933. Often considered the most beautiful piece of coinage struck in American history, the Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle is truly an iconic coin. This stunning example was struck at the San Francisco Mint in 1915 and has been graded Mint State 64 condition. Out of all 567,500 1915-S Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagles struck, only 2% have been graded MS64. With such a low mintage, this Saint-Gaudens is considered a tremendous Absolute Rarity.

Coins like this 1915-S Saint-Gaudens 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.
