Finding vintage coins in great condition is rare enough, let alone finding ones that are graded an astounding MS-65 by PCGS or NGC. These Random Year $20 NGC/PCGS MS-65 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle Gold Coins are close to a century old, making their fine condition even more surprising.
In fact, a few of the more pristine Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle gold coin specimens (MS-68 and above) have sold for upwards of $500,000 at auctions. These coins’ historical value, as well as their gold content, make them smart investments for those who wish to diversify their holdings with genuine pre-1933 US gold coins.
Each of these coins contains 0.9675 troy ounces of pure gold. Although their original $20 face values are still imprinted on their reverse faces, their actual value far exceeds that number, This is mostly due to the rise in the price of gold as well as the rise in demand for genuine, vintage coinage from the United States.

A marvelous background displaying the sun setting behind the Capitol building completes this portrayal with an elegant flair that is simply timeless.
