Tribute to Saint Gaudens
Winged Liberty $20 Design

 

        

This unique and beautiful coin comes from the Republic of Liberia.  One once of pure gold [.999], this $100 coin is a breath taking tribute to the the most famous designer of US coinage.

This design, Winged Liberty, was made by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907 at the request of President Theodore Roosevelt and was the proposed new design for the $20.00 gold coins.

It is indeed sad that this beautiful design was never used until the Republic of Liberia made this issue in 2002.

The above images hardly do justice to this truly unique coin.
