$20 St. Gaudens Type Gold Coin History:
The Saint Gaudens design was created in 1907 for use on $20 US gold coins and would come to be known as the double eagle. The coins were only produced until 1933, but during their short time in circulation they would prove to be a public favorite. Originally designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, a US Mint sculptor, the images depicted on the coin have been applied to numerous other coins produced by the mint. Such notable coins include the American Gold Eagle.
