This 1871-S $20 Liberty was produced by the San Francisco Mint and was the second iteration of the Liberty Double Eagle. Eventually there would be three Types, all highly collectible. This Type was minted from 1866-1876.
This version didn't make any changes to the obverse design, but there were a few small changes to the reverse. First, the oval containing the 13 stars above the eagle's head was expanded. Second, the motto 'IN GOD WE TRUST' was added. Third, the rays above the oval were modified. The shield sides, previously straight, were curved and the eagles tail feathers were moved lower and closer to the denomination.
The obverse design has Liberty facing left. Her crown has the word 'LIBERTY' in relief and the date is at the bottom of the coin. Liberty is surrounded by 13 stars and her hair is flowing downward.
