Pre-1933 U.S. gold coins are a great investment for collectors and investors alike. The United States Mint issued the first gold coins in 1795. Throughout the years, U.S. gold coins were struck at 7 different mints from Philadelphia to San Francisco. From 1838 to 1907, $20 Liberty Head gold coins were minted. $20 Saint-Gauden gold coins were minted from 1907 to 1933.

Pre-1933 U.S. gold coins are not only historically significant but also highly sought after works of art.

$5 Liberty Coins

$5 Liberty

The $5 Liberty is the only coin in U.S. history to be produced at all seven federal mints. Prior to 1838, all Half Eagles were struck at the Philadelphia Mint. Like the Quarter Eagle, the design, composition, and weight of the Half Eagle changed many times throughout its production. Beginning in 1837 and until the Half Eagle was discontinued in 1929, it was struck from .900-fine gold. In 1908 the Liberty design was replaced with the Indian Head design.

$10 Liberty Coins

$10 Liberty coin

Minted from 1866 to 1907, these classic U.S. gold eagles make an excellent gold portfolio builder. The world-famous profile of Miss Liberty is featured on the obverse and the heraldic American Eagle on the reverse. These are beautiful, heirloom-quality works of art that you can proudly add to your collection.

$20 Liberty Coins

$20 Liberty coin

The $20 Liberty double eagle is a highly recognized (and coveted) gold coin. As coins of trade, they were a workhorse in expanding U.S. financial markets in the 19th Century. These historic coins of heft have always been among our favorite portfolio builders.

The classic profile of Miss Liberty is featured on the obverse and the bold heraldic Eagle on the reverse, inspiring symbols of America’s emergence as a mature world power during this exciting period in our nation’s history.

$20 Saint Gaudens Coins

$20 Liberty coin

Some collectors consider the $20 Saint Gaudens to be the most beautiful gold coin ever struck; it certainly is the most popular of all U.S. coin designs and are always in extremely high demand by collectors and investors alike.

Commissioned by Teddy Roosevelt, one of the leading sculptors in America, Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the coin. Miss Liberty strides gloriously forward on the obverse, while the reverse features a majestic eagle flying above the sun.

This symbol of the emerging greatness of the United States in the 20th Century deserves a prominent place in every coin collection. $20 Saint Gaudens gold double-eagles are preferred by gold investors looking for a smart way to leverage the market. With scarcity and collector value, these coins appreciate in a rising gold market faster than common coins or bullion.
