History, Information, and Value of 1852-O Gold Liberty Double Eagle
Value of 1852-O $20 Gold Coin
This 1852-O $20 double eagle minted in New Orleans is scarce overall, and most are sharply struck with others showing a lighter strike at the obverse center and at the stars. High grade coins are often prooflike from polishing of the dies at the Philadelphia Mint (where all dies were made). Though moderately scarce overall, examples in grades up through Extremely Fine can be found with little effort. The issue becomes very scarce in About Uncirculated condition, and properly graded Mint State pieces remain very rare. Fewer than two dozen individual Uncirculated coins are thought to exist, with a single MS-65 (NCG) ranking as finest known.
