Specifications

Following the United States Coinage act of 1849, famed sculptor James B. Longacre was tasked with designing a gold coin with a $20 denomination-the highest at the time-to facilitate the nation's growing economic expansion. This coin was pivotal to the United States' economic success from 1840 until it was replaced by the Saint Gaudens double eagle in 1907.
