Common date Type 3 $20 Liberty coins are very popular and for good reasons. In near-gem Mint State 64 condition, they combine true scarcity, large gold content, and moderate prices to create an excellent value in classic coins.
Minted from 1877 to 1907, these coins were the crucial building blocks of expanding U.S. financial markets in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Only a tiny fraction of the original mintage survives today in higher-grade Mint State conditions, yet they are remarkably affordable in today's market.
Out of an original mintage of more than 60 million, only 115,404 survivors are known in near-gem Mint State 64 condition (PCGS + NGC, 12/28/2016). $20 Liberty gold coins in MS64 are many times scarcer than the $20 Saint-Gaudens issue that followed it. This fundamental scarcity is the primary reason we prefer this coin over the extremely popular and perhaps more beautiful Saints.
During periods of peak demand these coins have rocketed in price because of their exceptional scarcity and collector interest. In 1989, during the last rare coin boom, they traded dealer-to-dealer for $4,525. In our opinion, they offer a lot of bang for the buck!
• Only 115,404 coins survive in certified MS64. This true scarcity can mean higher premiums during periods of increased demand.
• Previous market high of $4,525 in 1989.* Combines reasonable price with good upside potential.
• Private, secure, and liquid. Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements.
