United States $20.00 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle 1907-1933


As the U.S. the 20th century, Augustus Saint-Gaudens was widely recognized as the nation’s preeminent sculptor. However, after having his magnificent design for the official medal for the 1892 World’s Columbian Exposition attacked as “obscene” (the reverse of which depicted a nude of a Grecian youth holding a torch and wreaths for the victors) St. Gaudens vowed that he would go to the grave before having anything further to do with the Mint Bureau.
