Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The 1924 Double Eagle is easily the most common date of the series. Nearly 10% of the large mintage of over 4 million coins has been graded by the major grading services. NGC has graded over 100,000 coins in MS 64 alone! Much of Europe was in financial distress around this time and large quantities of this and other dated Double Eagles were sent overseas for international banking transactions. Many sat there for decades and large numbers continue to find their way back to the United States each year. Luckily, the abundance of coins available makes this a great candidate for a Type coin of the issue. NGC has graded two coins as MS 68, the last of which sold at auction for $48,875 in 2005.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
