Long regarded as Americas greatest coin design, the images from the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin were created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907 to help modernize and revive the look of American coinage. Saint-Gaudens design of Liberty that featured on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933 is one of the most reproduced images in American coining history.

Augustus Saint-Gaudens is regarded as Americas greatest coin designer. Born in Dublin, Ireland in 1848, he was raised in New York City and traveled throughout Europe as a young man to train and continue his artistic studies. Saint-Gaudens was chosen directly by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1905 to lead the effort in reviving American coin design.
Saint-Gaudens created two of the most popular coin designs of the early 20th century. On this silver round, youll find his popular full-figure image of Liberty that featured on the Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933. He also created the so-called Indian Head design of Liberty found on the $10 Gold Eagle coin from 1907 to 1916 and intermittently through 1933.
On the obverse of these 2 oz Saint-Gaudens Silver Rounds, youll find the image of Liberty designed by Saint-Gaudens. This vision of Liberty depicts her figure in full relief as she strides forth from the city of Washington DC holding her torch high overhead in her right hand and carrying a large olive branch in her left. On these silver rounds her figure is depicted with 50 stars around it and the word Liberty above her head.
The reverse of 2 oz Saint-Gaudens Silver Rounds features the American bald eagle in flight. This is the same design from the reverse of the $20 Gold Double Eagle and it glides through the air with its wings spread wide as the sun rises over the horizon and its rays reach toward the edges of the round design. This round includes the engraving United States of America and Two Troy Ounces.
Each of these silver rounds is available to you courtesy of the Intaglio Mint. A small private mint in Texas, Intaglio Mint crafts each design in-house with impressive attention to detail and a desire to create truly unique products.
