History, Information, and Value of 1914 St. Gaudens $20 Gold
Value of 1914 St. Gaudens $20 Gold
The 1914 St. Gaudens is generally well struck with most examples displaying overall bold, if not sharp detail. Luster tends to be strong with a lovely satin or softly frosted texture. The typical Mint State survivor has moderately to heavily abraded surfaces.
This low mintage double eagle is legitimately scarce in Uncirculated condition, although the collector should be able to acquire an MS-60 to MS-64 example without undue effort. Like so many other Saint-Gaudens double eagles, the 1914 is rare in MS-65 and very rare in higher grades. PCGS reports an MS-66+ as the finest certified for the issue. Sand Blast Proofs of this date are comparable in rarity to the Satin Finish Proofs of 1909 and the Sand Blast Proofs of 1913 with an extant population of just 40 to 45 specimens.
