1908-P $20 Saint Gaudens Gold Double Eagle PCGS MS64 (With Motto) Blazer PQ++
Less than 200,000 coins were minted. Only 156,258 were minted, many were melted down and never circulated. To find high grade With Motto Philadelphia Mint coinage is nearly impossible. The denomination was created as a means of exhausting an overage in gold supply due to the 1849 California Gold Rush. They were never intended for general use in commerce as the amount easily equated to a month's wage during the time of issue - making them impractical to carry as a coin. PCGS encapsulation offers protection and guarantees the beautiful MS-64 condition of the coin. Certified in an fresh Blue PCGS holder. Conservatively graded in our opinion, PQ++. No motto and Struck at the Philadelphia Mint. Obverse: Depicts Liberty striding forward holding a torch and an olive branch with the U. Capitol building in the backdrop. Reverse: Features an eagle in flight against the sun in the background.
