1920-S Ten Dollar, AU58
A Major 20th Century Rarity

1920-S $10 AU58 PCGS. The 1920-S ten dollar has long been acknowledged as one of the prime rarities of U.S. 20th century gold coinage. David Akers opines in his handbook entitled 20th Century United States Gold Coins that most of the 126,500 pieces minted are believed to have been melted at the Mint. The issue is rare in all grades, evidenced by the fact that PCGS and NGC combined have certified only about 100 examples.
This near-Mint State offering displays ample luster on apricot-gold surfaces imbued with traces of mint-green. The design features are better struck than ordinarily seen, especially on the hair around Liberty's ear, on all letters in LIBERTY, and on the digits 192; these elements are typically soft. The circulation marks encountered do not detract. Population: 7 in 58, 25 finer (11/11).(Registry values: N4719) (NGC ID# 28H8, PCGS# 8881)

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins.

Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
