Almost everyone who holds one of these historic miniature works of art falls in love with them. Very few people will ever get the chance to own this date and mintmark in MS66 condition.
 
These beautiful gold coins minted at the Philadelphia Mint in 1924 feature the Iconic walking Liberty design by the leading beaux arts Sculptor of the time Augustus St. Gaudens. Many numismatists and collectors consider this to be America’s most beautiful coin and a miniature work of art.
 
In the early 1900s, President Theodore Roosevelt called for a renaissance in American coinage. The President had seen and marveled at an exhibition of ancient Greek coinage and thought our coinage was dull in comparison and not reflective of a great nation ready to lead the world in a new century. He called on his friend and leading beaux arts sculptor of the time Augustus Saint-Gaudens to redesign America’s coins.
The coin he created features Lady Liberty in full figure with a rising sun and the U.S. Capital in the background. The design was repeated in 1986 when the United States Mint introduced the American Gold and Silver Eagle bullion and proof coins.
