1849 Liberty Head Double Eagle Trial

Now you have the opportunity to own an extraordinary 24k gold-layered trial of a new dollar coin featuring the exquisite eagle design found on the reverse of the very first $20 gold piece ever struck. The U.S. Mint produced only one gold double eagle in 1849 to be presented as a pattern coin for future gold double eagles. That sole existing specimen now resides in the Smithsonian Institution and is estimated to be worth $10 to $20 million.

Designed by James B. Longacre, the Liberty Head Double Eagle features a left facing Liberty, her hair bundled and secured with a beaded tie, with a few loose curls cascading down her neck. She is encircled by thirteen six-point stars. On the reverse, a left-facing heraldic eagle appears, wings outstretched with a shield, a bundle of arrows,and an olive branch in its talons. The sole piece minted in 1849 resides at the Smithsonian Institution.

Available exclusively from American Mint, this 24k gold-layered trial is our artists'interpretation of what the next dollar coins would look like if they were to feature heraldic eagles from classic U.S. coins of the past. This magnificent trial coin features the eagle from the firstgold double eagle ever produced. Minted to the highest quality "Proof" standard, it comes in its own protective capsule to preserve it for future generations.
