Low prices and premiums
$20 Saint-Gaudens double eagles are often considered one of the most beautiful of all U.S. gold coins. In gem-quality Mint State 65 condition they combine true scarcity, large gold content, and gorgeous eye-appeal to create excellent value. And what's more, they're trading today at extremely low prices and premiums, making them an exceptional value.
Extreme scarcity, great upside potential
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 231,664 survivors are known in gem-quality Mint State 65 condition (PCGS + NGC, 12/28/2016), all dates included.
During periods of peak demand these coins have surged in price because of their extreme scarcity. In 2009, they traded for more than $2,900 each. The current (price above gold content) is around 39%, less than half its 10-year average of around 81%.
Because of their status as collectibles, pre-1933 US gold coins are exempt from broker reporting requirements to the IRS.
• Prices at 8-year lows. Last time they were this low, gold was $875 an ounce!
• Premiums just 39%. Less than half the 10-year premium of 81%!
• Private, secure, and liquid. Classic coins are exempt from broker reporting requirements.
