Pictures and info on the 1933 ‘Double Gold Eagle’ coin.

In 1933 Theodore Roosevelt released the Double Gold Eagle coin to celebrate the glory of America. The coin was designed by Saint-Gaudens. Twenty-five years later Franklin Roosevelt, Theodore’s cousin, recalled the coin and had them all melted down into bars of gold. This is indeed one of the most valuable coins today and there are only three in existence.

One of the coins is the National Museum of American History. The U.S. Mint gave another coin to the U.S. National Numismatic Collection. One coin still remains out in the public and belongs to a private collector.

The coins are valued today at $7,600,000. A rich and avid collector may be interested in purchasing one of them but they’ll need to find the one that is still in the hands of the public first.

In 2004 the National Collectors Mint issued a replica coin. The coins were the exact same in design but they were not physical replicas. When released, the coins did not indicate that they were replicas or copies in any way. There was much controversy over the design and sale of these coins and so the coins were reissued indicating that they were copies of the original coin.
