St. Gaudens Gold Piece Copy 1933
Hi AMasri -- You have a replica of a famous St. Gaudens $20 gold double eagle, or $20 piece. For genuine coins, not replicas, more than 400,000 were struck. All except 13 coins dated 1933 were melted, and of those 13 only one has been on the market. In fact, Congress has ruled that it is illegal to own a 1933-dated gold piece since President Roosevelt signed an order that it was illegal to own gold that year. Replicas like yours may or may not display the motto In God We Trust, but they contain only a teensy bit of gold plating and are selling for $10 to $20 as a novelty -- a pretty novelty -- but a novelty nevertheless.
