Today, collectors owe thanks to the 100 or so contemporary collectors who ordered double eagles from the Denver Mint in 1931 to keep their collections updated. Without those few collectors, the 1931-D twenty might become another unknown issue such as the 1873-S Seated dollar or the 1964-D Peace dollar. Estimates of the number of surviving examples fall in the 100 to 150 coin range, a small population for a member of so popular a series as the Saint-Gaudens double eagles.
This impressive twenty has a bold strike with beautiful rose-gold at the centers, and a frame of light greenish-gold near the borders. Both sides have the usual quota of small marks associated with the grade, and they are more evident on the reverse of this specimen. Population: 34 in 64, 19 finer (11/10).(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 26GP, PCGS# 9193)

The Coinage of Augustus Saint-Gaudens is an issue-by-issue examination of these two artistically inspired series of gold coins.
Each date and mintmark is reviewed with up-to-date information, much of which has never been previously published. The book is based on
two extraordinary collections: The Phillip H. Morse collection and the Dr. and Mrs. Steven L. Duckor collection.
