1897-S $20 Liberty Gold Coin NGC/PCGS MS-63 Quality

We absolutely love the current value that can be found in $20 Liberty Gold Coins from the late 1800s and early 1900s. We particularly look for years that offer a combination of low mintages and low survival rates that trade for a very small premium in price to common dates like the 1904 - what we call a "Better-Date".

This 1897 San Fran Double Eagle in Mint State 63 is a great example. Compared to the common 1904, the 1897-S is over 29 times more rare, yet it can be acquired for around only 20% more. Excellent value for the money and it has .9675 oz. of pure gold to boot.

Please know that the coin imaged is unlikely to be the exact coin received, but it’s indicative of the grade and appearance. All coins will be graded by either PCGS or NGC.
