Double Eagles - Gold $20.00

Double Eagle is a gold coin of the United States with a denomination of $20. James Barton Longacre designed the pattern for the twenty dollar gold piece in 1849. It was produced because of the huge amount of gold that came into the Mint from California. With the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in January 1848, the California gold rush began. It led to an influx of miners and others into the area. The vast quantity of gold produced led to a need for a standard form of exchange. The twenty dollar coin was the government’s response. They also felt that it would be useful for large commercial transactions and that it would facilitate foreign trade.
