A fitting tribute to the most expensive gold coin in the world

Own a stunning replica of the £7.6m gold coin

This is a beautiful new scale reproduction of the famous 1933 US Double Eagle, the world's most expensive gold coin.

About This Commemorative

This replica features Lady Liberty holding a torch and olive branch, backed by a glory. The reverse features a bald eagle in flight, again backed by a glory, and with the inscription 'In God We Trust'.

It's struck in 14 karat gold (.585), and minted to Proof quality. This new strike is meticulously crafted to replicate the true beauty of what is considered one of the most beautiful coins in the world.

A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies each scale reproduction – essential to prove the specifications.

The 1933 Double Eagle Gold Coin

Just 445,500 specimens of this Saint-Gaudens double $20 eagle coin were minted in 1933. None of them made it to circulation. All but two were ordered melted down.

But! As you might see in a classic film, 20 are known to have been "rescued" from melting by being stolen and passed into the hands of avid coin collectors. 19 of these were recovered by the Secret Service, who destroyed nine of them, making this one of the world's rarest coins.

The 2 intentionally spared coins are in the US National Numismatic Collection, 1 is in the hands of a private owner who paid US$7.59 million for it in 2002 (the second-highest price paid at auction for a single US coin) and 10 others are held in Fort Knox.

This is your chance to add the 1933 Double Eagle to your collection - albeit at a much lower price.
