In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to redesign the Gold Double Eagle coin. The resulting masterpiece featured Lady Liberty striding toward the viewer into the dawn of a new day and has long been considered the most beautiful coin ever created. Twenty-five years later, as America found itself in the grip of the Great Depression, Teddy Roosevelt's cousin, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, made private ownership of gold illegal. The Gold Double Eagles minted in 1933 were to be melted down into plain gold bars. As many as 20 coins escaped this fate: two were given to the Smithsonian for exhibit and a handful were secreted away by the Mint's chief cashier. One by one, the Secret Service was able to locate - and confiscate - most of the coins.One missing coin ended up in the collection of Egypt's King Farouk, but political considerations kept agents from confiscating it. After Farouk was removed from power, the coin disappeared until 1996when it was seized by federal agents and stored away in a vault in the World Trade Center. In a miraculous twist of fate, the coin was moved from the World Trade Center just before the terrorist attacks of September 11. A year later, the single surviving 1933 Gold Double Eagle was sold at auction for an astonishing 7.59 million dollars, making it the most expensive gold coin in history.
