James B. Longacre, the artist behind the designs on both the obverse and reverse of the Liberty Double Eagle, engraved a classical rendition of Lady Liberty on the coin’s obverse. His portrayal, inspired by the royal effigies seen on Greco-Roman currency, depicts Liberty in profile with thick curls beneath an inscribed crown. Encircled by a ring of thirteen stars as a nod to the original thirteen colonies, Longacre’s captivating representation has led to the coin being commonly called the “Liberty Head” or “Coronet” Double Eagle.
The reverse of the $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coin VF features the Great Seal of the United States. This emblematic design showcases a bald eagle with a shield, an olive branch, and arrows. While Longacre’s artwork remained consistent throughout the coin’s mintage, various changes were made to the inscriptions. These modifications include the addition of the “In God We Trust” motto in 1866 and the abbreviation change of the coin’s denomination in 1877.
