Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: As with all other Double Eagles coined in this decade, virtually the entire mintage was melted during the late 1930s. There are probably less than 100 examples known of the date in all grades. The population numbers for the issue are probably a bit exaggerated due to resubmissions. Most seen have scattered bag marks and would grade MS 64 or MS 65. The Smithsonian collection example is possibly the finest known and would probably grade MS 67. In complete contrast to the Indian Head Eagles of 1932, which are an extremely common hoard date, the 1932 Saint–Gaudens Double Eagle is very expensive and difficult to obtain. The 1932 Double Eagle is also very popular as the last collectible coin for the series. An NGC MS 66 example sold at auction for $92,000 in 2010.
