History, Information, and Value of 1915 St. Gaudens $20 Gold
Value of 1915 St. Gaudens $20 Gold
This double eagle almost always comes sharply struck with appealing satin luster. Survivors range from heavily abraded to relatively smooth and most display at least a few significant handling marks.
Scarce by Saint-Gaudens double eagle standards (similar to the 1914 in this regard), the 1915 St. Gaudens is typically encountered no finer than MS-64. Gems in MS-65 are rare and apart from a single MS-66 listed at NGC the issue is unknown any finer. This is the final year in which the Mint struck Proof double eagles and the Sand Blast 1915 is the rarest regular issue Proof of the Saint-Gaudens design type. No more than 35 or 40 coins are accounted for in numismatic hands.
