1858 Liberty Head double eagle $20 gold coins are considerably scarce coins from a decently large original output of more than 1 million coins. However, as is usually the case with pre-1933 gold coins, many 1858 double eagles were melted over the course of the ensuing decades, and certainly far fewer exist today. 1858 $20 gold coins have an allure for both numismatists and bullion investors alike, most notably because they contain a relatively large amount of gold – 0.9613 ounces per coin, to be precise.

Here’s a look at the 1858 $20 gold double eagles:

  • 1858, 211,714; $2,225

  • 1858-O, 35,250; $5,000

  • 1858-S, 846,710; $2,500

The Philadelphia and San Francisco double eagles from 1858 are about as expensive as most other $20 gold coins from the era. The 1858 Liberty Head double eagle was designed by James B. Longacre. He served as Chief Engraver of the United States Mint from 1844 through 1869 and has designed many popular series, including the Indian Head penny and 2 Cent coin.
