The centerpiece of America's 20th century "gold standard" was The Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, or $20 gold piece, which stands above the rest as the single most magnificent coin of this-or any- era in U.S. history. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt hired personal friend and sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to design the new $20 and $10 coins. The Saint-Gaudens $20 design was so acclaimed that the Mint chose to use this design for the creation of the modern Gold American Eagle coins.
