Pre-1933 US Gold Coins
U.S. gold coins from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries feature some of the most beautiful designs ever minted onto American coinage. Designs include the famous Saint-Gaudens Eagle and Double Eagle denominations ($10 and $20 gold pieces), plus other designs featuring the Native American "Indian", Lady Liberty, and various depictions of the American Eagle. Many of the U.S. gold coins issued from the 1850's onward are suprisingly affordable, selling for little more than the gold bullion value, because these coins were minted in large numbers as a result of the great influx of gold being mined in California and elsewhere in the West. Prices given in this Gallery are dealer asking prices for the exact specimen pictured, and not necessarily meant to reflect the average value for a coin of that date and mint in that condition.
