The Double Eagle is one of the most popular coins ever produced by the U.S. Mint. Congress commissioned the original Double Eagle in 1849 in response to the influx of gold into the American economy in the aftermath of the California Gold Rush. The Mint engaged in the full-scale production of the Double Eagle from 1850 until 1933. The first design featured a depiction of Liberty wearing a coronet and encircled by 13 six-point starts to represent the original American colonies.
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 to exhibit, and a few 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 1996 when federal agents seized it 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.
