A 1900 U.S. Gold Double Eagle coin in Nearly Mint State condition, with very light wear and moderate luster. Minted at the Philadelphia mint (no mintmark). This listing is for the exact coin pictured.Up until 1933, when President Roosevelt demonetized all gold coins, the U.S. produced gold coins in denominations ranging from $1 up to $20. Each denomination had a name, with an "eagle" representing the $10 coin, "double eagle" for the $20, and half eagle for the $5 coin. This double eagle coin was worth $20, and contains an amount of gold equivalent to roughly $20 at the time it was minted.
