$20 Saint Gaudens MS63 CAC
When President Theodore Roosevelt took office, one of his goals was to have our nation’s coinage reflect the strength and vitality of America. Roosevelt referred to this undertaking as his “pet crime”. He was so appalled by our coinage he termed them “atrociously hideous”. Roosevelt, aware that Mint engravers were not up to the creative challenge, persuaded his friend and renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to fashion new designs, starting with the eagle and double eagle. Saint-Gaudens’ double eagle creation is considered the zenith of American coin design. His stunning double eagle had the tremendous relief Roosevelt so admired on ancient Greek and Roman coinage. Unfortunately, the design proved impractical and the relief had to be lowered. Even though the modified version is a mere shadow of the original, it is still considered to be the prettiest coin America ever produced.
