1924-P $20 Saint Gaudens Pre 33 NGC MS62

1924-P $20 Saint Gaudens Gold Double Eagle Pre-1933 NGC MS 62 PQ+.

This coin is from a fresh group a Gold $20’s we recently bought out of a nice fresh local collection that’s been tucked away for years. This better date is really tough to find in choice NS62 condition. Only 4,323,500 were minted, many were melted down and never circulated. This 1924-P is a popular and sought after Philadelphia Mint $20.

Created by master sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the 1924-P $20 Gold Saint Gaudens is the descendant of the $20 Liberty Double Eagle which first entered circulation in 1850. The denomination was created as a means of exhausting an overage in gold supply due to the 1849 California Gold Rush. They were never intended for general use in commerce as the amount easily equated to a month's wage during the time of issue - making them impractical to carry as a coin. Instead, they were struck to monetize the surplus of gold and to be used exclusively in business transactions, largely between banks.
