    Description

    1866 Liberty Double Eagle, AU58
    First Year With Motto

    1866 $20 Motto AU58 PCGS. The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added to the double eagle design in 1866 and the Philadelphia Mint struck a substantial mintage of 698,745 examples of the new Type Two design. However, few examples were saved in Mint State condition, as contemporary collectors preferred to update their collections with proofs every year. This impressive near-Mint specimen exhibits just a trace of wear on the well-detailed design elements and the lightly abraded orange-gold surfaces retain much of their original mint luster. Population: 83 in 58 (5 in 58+), 67 finer (10/19).(Registry values: N1793)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 269X, PCGS# 8949)

    Weight: 33.44 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
