Coincidentally, Saint Gaudens design not only won the approval of Roosevelt, but the entire country, and has been appropriately titled "America's Most Beautiful Coin". Gaudens Double Eagle features Liberty holding a torch & olive branch, while the sun's rays and U.
Capitol building are in the background. The reverse depicts an eagle in flight with the sun's rays in the background just like the obverse. Saint Gaudens initial design consisted of a high relief obverse and reverse, and the date in roman numerals, however after his death in 1907, plans were made to redesign the coin to lower the relief, as it became impractical for circulation strikes. Three varieties exist within the St. Gaudens pattern, with countless more specimens in existence for the 1907.
