About this Product

From the boom of California’s gold rush of the late 1840’s came America’s largest circulating gold coin, the $20 gold piece, also known as the Double Eagle. The U.S. Treasury was receiving such an extraordinary amount of gold from California’s mines at that time, which it was forced to expand its plans for a $1 gold piece to include the much larger Double Eagle. On March 3, 1849, Congress passed the authorizing legislation and the Double Eagle was born. These coins have a certain illustriousness suiting their status and face value.
