The Denver Mint produced just 106,500 Double Eagles in 1931, the vast majority of which were not released into circulation. Rather, nearly all of the original mintage was retained in federal vaults and then melted in the aftermath of President Roosevelt's Gold Recall Act of April 5, 1933. Gold specialists once considered the 1931-D to be equally as rare as the 1930-S. A small hoard of 15-20 coins, however, surfaced in the Midwest in 1984, and a few others have trickled back from European sources during the past 30 years. This issue is now similar in rarity to the 1931 and 1932, but perhaps receives slightly more attention due to its much lower mintage.(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GP, PCGS# 9193)
