    Origins of Pre-33 US Gold Coins

    Gold coinage in the United States dates back to the late 18th century, with the Coinage Act of 1792 establishing the first official U.S. Mint and authorizing the production of various denominations, including gold coins. The first gold coins minted by the U.S. Mint were the $5 half eagle and the $10 eagle, both introduced in 1795. These coins featured designs created by prominent artists such as Robert Scot, the 1st Chief Engraver of the United States Mint.

    1834-1907 Era

    Prior to 1834, U.S. gold coins were minted with high gold content and often featured classical designs, including depictions of Liberty and eagles. Notable coin designs during this period include the Capped Bust, Classic Head, and Liberty Head motifs.

    The discovery of gold in California in 1848 led to a significant increase in the production of gold coins by the U.S. Mint. The $20 Double Eagle coin was introduced in 1849 to accommodate the large quantities of gold being mined in California and to facilitate international trade. The $1 Gold Coin, also known as the “Type 1 Gold Dollar,” was introduced in 1849 and featured a small diameter compared to other gold coins.

    Following the Civil War, the U.S. economy experienced a period of reconstruction and economic growth. Gold coins continued to be minted, with designs such as the Liberty Head and Indian Head motifs appearing on various denominations.

    New Century, New Imagery

    In the early 20th century, the U.S. Mint produced gold coins with iconic designs, including the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle ($20) and the Indian Head Eagle ($10). These coins featured intricate artwork by renowned sculptors such as Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Bela Lyon Pratt.
