Description & Analysis

Although the mintage of the 1904 Philadelphia double eagle was over six million pieces, only 98 proofs were struck that year. This number means that only 0.0016% of 1904 double eagles struck were proofs. The fact that $20 was a week's worth of wages for many families at this time explains the low mintage. Today, perhaps half of the original mintage still exists, as many were lost to the Great Depression.
