1849 Liberty Head Double Eagle Replica Archival Edition
The first gold double eagle ever minted in the U.S. was minted in 1849, coinciding with the discovery of gold in California. However, the mint only produced one proofthe first year; full production for the solid gold coin did not start until 1850. The sole existing specimen now resides in the Smithsonian Institution and is considered priceless, but some experts estimate its value at between $10 and $20 million. Designed by James B. Longacre, the Liberty Head Double Eagle features a left-facing Liberty, her hair bundled and secured with a beaded tie, with a few loose curls cascading down herneck. She is encircled by thirteen six-point stars. On the reverse, a left-facing heraldic eagle appears, wings outstretched with a shield, a bundle of arrows, and an olive brance in his talons. Thesole piece minted in 1849 resides at the Smithsonian Institution.
