As is the case with all pre-1933 U.S. gold coins, it should be noted that the 1850 Liberty Head $20 gold coin is much scarcer than mintage figures may suggest. After 1933, when the United States was removed from the gold standard, millions of gold coins were melted down, including large numbers of double eagles. Therefore, you should ensure that any gold coins you buy are authentic. Protect yourself by buying gold coins only from reputable coin dealers or purchasing coins in third-party certified holders.
