History, Information, and Value of 1855 Gold Liberty Double Eagle
Value of 1855 $20 Gold Coin
The 1855 $20 double eagle from Philadelphia is mildly scarce and typically found well struck despite scattered die cracks. Subdued and grainy luster limits the eye appeal on many pieces, rendering truly premium examples highly desirable to collectors. Most examples are significantly worn, with a heavy concentration in Very Fine and Extremely Fine grades. This issue becomes even scarcer in AU with perhaps only 200 coins available. Fewer than two dozen examples are throughout to exist in Mint State, and the finest of those is an MS-64 (PCGS) from the collection of Bill Crawford.
