Description

Lustrous, Rare 1926-D Twenty, MS62

1926-D $20 MS62 NGC. Among the important key-date issues in the Saint-Gaudens series, the 1926-D had a surprisingly low mintage of just 481,000 coins, the third lowest mintage of the decade. Mintage figures actually have little to do with rarity in this series. Several of the branch-mint issues of the 1920s had mintages of 2 or 3 million pieces, yet rank among the key-date issues today. Most 1926-D twenties undoubtedly never left Treasury vaults, and were melted sometime after 1933, along with the '27-D and other now rare issues. This moderately abraded example has honey-gold surfaces with soft, frosty luster on both sides. The central details are sharply defined, while the rims have typical beveled edges. Census: 52 in 62, 29 finer (6/09).

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.
