Rare $20 Gold Coin Value Guide

Twenty dollar gold coins were first issued by The United States Mint in 1849.  The last year that the Mint made $20 gold coins for circulation was 1933.  While that is only a 74 year span, more than one hundred different types of $20 gold coins exist when you factor in all of the different denominations, designs, and mint marks.  It would cost millions of dollars (and be extremely difficult) to complete an entire set of twenty dollar U.S. gold coins.  When dealing with collectible gold coins it is extremely important to consider the condition of the coin.  The condition of a twenty dollar gold piece coin can make two seemingly similar coins be worth $1,200, $12,000, or maybe even $120,000.  You will need to talk to one of our coin experts to learn what your coin would grade.  In the meantime, you can use our value guides below to learn which years and mint marks are rare for either the Liberty Head or St. Gaudens series.  We will go ahead and give you a quick list of the best of the best.  Those are $20 gold coins from 1854-O, 1856-O, 1859-O, 1870-CC, 1871-CC, 1879-O, 1881, 1882, 1885, 1886, some 1907s, 1920-S, 1921, 1927-D, and 1930-S.  Any $20 gold coins from those years will be rare.
