American Coin Classic 2002 Saint-Gaudens Winged Liberty 1 oz. Gold PCGS PR69DCAM

Few coin collectors would question the designation of the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle as one of the most beautiful coins ever made. But this design was actually sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens second choice. Up to now, all that remained of his original vision was a plaster model in the National Park Service Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish, New Hampshire. But now that nearly century old model has been transformed into a magnificent gold coin. One is in the permanent collection of the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, and if you act quickly one can be in your collection. The design is similar to that used on the first 1907 high-relief Saint-Gaudens $20 gold pieces, with the dramatic addition of a crown of feathers and wings on Ms. Liberty. The winged Liberty obverse is combined with a majestic eagle, modeled after the national bird on Theodore Roosevelt’s special inaugural medal (1905). This magnificent Winged Liberty coin has a precious metal content of 1 troy oz. of pure (999 fine) gold. It was issued by Liberia with a face value of Hundred Dollars. It is certified by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as Proof-69 Deep Cameo. The frosted designs of this penultimate grade contrast with blazing mirrorlike fields, to produce a spectacular beautiful gold piece.
