Liberty Head $20
1881 $20 PF

Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia mint struck a mere 2,199 business strike $20 gold double eagles in 1881. Today they are very rare in all grades, and even more-so in mint state. NGC has only graded a total of four examples in mint state. The proof version of this date is even rarer, however, with only 61 coins struck. NGC has only graded a total of 7 examples of the proof.
