Minted at the famed Carson City Mint, this 1899 $20 Liberty Double Eagle is PCGS graded AU50 and features the coveted CAC sticker.

This is a Type 3 Liberty Head and features a few design changes from the original, which was minted from 1849-1866.

Both the Type 1 and Type 2 $20 Liberty Heads listed the denomination as 'TWENTY D.' whereas this Type 3 lists the denomination as 'TWENTY DOLLARS'. This version also contain the motto 'IN GOD WE TRUST' which first made an appearance on the Type 2 (minted 1866-1876).

This is the most common of all three types of Liberty Head Double Eagles, with over 64 million pieces eventually minted. It was produced at mints in San Francisco, Carson City, Philadelphia, Denver and New Orleans.

These coins share the distinction of high popularity with both rare coin and bullion collectors.

The obverse has Liberty facing left, surrounded by 13 stars, with her hair flowing to her shoulder. Her coronet (crown) has LIBERTY in relief, and the date is at the bottom. The image for the portrait is a modification of a Greco-Roman statue which was much admired by designer James Longacre. The reverse depicts an eagle, wings spread, with a Union shield superimposed on its chest. In its right claw the eagle holds an olive branch, and arrows are held in its left claw.


Within each number of the coin grading scale is a small range of condition from low-end to high-end. Certified coins of the same grade can be of varying quality. Many of today’s collectors want coins that are solid or premium quality for their assigned grade. CAC holds coins to a higher standard so you can be confident in the value of yours. We verify previously graded coins … and award our sticker only to those coins that meet the standard for today’s selective buyer.


  • Verified. Your coin has been verified as meeting the standard for strict quality within its grade.
  • Guaranteed. CAC stands behind our verification by making markets in most actively traded coins.


CAC was founded by leading members of the numismatic community, including John Albanese, a respected authority on coin grading and the rare coin market.
