Description & Analysis

The 1886 $20 double eagle is among the rarest issues with only 1,000 mint state and 106 proof pieces struck. This total mintage makes this the 6th lowest mintage for the entire series. It is believed that perhaps a third of the proofs have survived. The business strike issues have fared even worse, with an estimated surviving population of only a few dozen pieces at most.
