True scarcity, excellent value
$20 Saint-Gaudens double eagles are often considered one of the most beautiful of all U.S. gold coins. In gem-quality Mint State 64 condition they combine true scarcity, large gold content, and gorgeous eye-appeal to create excellent value.
Three times in the last four year, these classic coins have traded above $2,300 each. Today, they're trading for around 30% less, making them a true bargain. What's more, their premiums over gold melt are near historic lows--just 30%, around half of their 10-year average of 59%.
Minted from 1907 to 1933, $20 Saints were the crucial building blocks of expanding U.S. financial power in the early 20th century. Out of an original mintage of more than 60 million, the vast majority were either used in circulation or melted down during the Depression, or both. Only 526,018 survivors are known in near-gem Mint State 64 condition (PCGS + NGC, 10/13/2014), all dates included.
During periods of peak demand these coins have surged in price because of their extreme scarcity. Over the past ten years, their average premium has been 59%. On five occasions since 2003, premiums have climbed to peaks between 94% and 118%--three to four times today's.
Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements. In our opinion, they're one of the best buys in the classic coin market.
• Premiums around 30%. Average premium over the past 10 years is 59%.
• Huge upside potential. Traded above $2,300 each three times int he past four years.
• Better than bullion. All the advantages of bullion plus true scarcity, increased profit potential, and financial privacy.
