History, Information, and Value of 1860-S Gold Liberty Double Eagle

Value of 1860-S $20 Gold Coin

The 1860-S $20 double eagle tends to exhibit traces of softness across the obverse at the high points of Libertys hair, with die cracks through the peripheral elements of both sides. The luster on this San Francisco mint issue is usually handsome on original examples, remaining soft and frosty with a sometimes grainy texture. The coins of this issue circulated extensively, leaving most survivors in Extremely Fine condition and readily available for todays collectors. While Choice AU examples are scarce, true Mint State pieces are rare, with just about two dozen pieces known up through MS-64.
