An outstanding selection of rare twenty dollar gold coins
highlights the upcoming Heritage Auctions US
Coins Signature Auction, to take place May 30-June 3 at the Long
Beach Coin and Collectibles Expo.
The most prominent among the double eagle offerings in this
auction is probably the Eliasberg/Duckor
1931 coin. At MS66, it is surpassed in grade by only one coin at
either of the major grading services, and the pedigree speaks volumes
about the state of preservation, originality, and eye appeal of this
The high relief double eagles of 1907 are almost universally
considered the most beautiful coins ever produced by the US Mint, so
when a coin appears in an MS67 grade with the designation for
exceptional eye appeal from NGC, even the most jaded collectors take
notice. The Heritage Long Beach auction features just
such a coin, a breathtaking piece with complete striking details
that fully realize Augustus Saint-Gaudens' artistic vision.
Of course, this auction is by no means limited to large gold
coins; other rare gold coins and early silver coinage are
well-represented as well. A Proof-64 example of the always-popular Flowing
Hair Stella, a pattern commonly collected alongside regularly
issued US coinage for its unusual four denomination, is certain to be
among the most popular coins among bidders.
This auction is open for bidding now at HA.com/Coins.
