United States $20 St. Gaudens
Grade:  Mint State 63 PCGS/NGC
Dated 1914-S
Actual Gold Content:  .9675 troy ounce

Now Only 45 Coins Available SOLD OUT

Rationale:  Mint Marked 'S' San Francisco - Rarer/Better Date 

  • All coins dated 1914-S.  According to PCGS and NGC, the combined total known population of 1914-S dated St. Gaudens in Mint State 63 is 16,832, versus 229,230 1924's and 119,081 1908 No Motto's (the two most common dates).  Put another way, the 1914-S dated coins are 14x and 7.5x as rare as the two most common Saint Gaudens dates respectively.
  • Fantastic opportunity to own 'mint-marked' St. Gaudens - broadly speaking, branch mints (San Francisco and Denver for the St. Gaudens series), produced far fewer coins annually than the main mint facility in Philadelphia (no mint-mark).  As such, mint-marked St. Gaudens are highly coveted, substantially harder to locate and typically command hefty premiums.  Needless to say, when this deal surfaced at the same price as a common dated coins, we were all over it.
  • All coins in mixed PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service) and NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Coporation) holders.

Historical Note:

The San Francisco Mint was opened in 1854 to process gold from the California Gold Rush into gold coin.  It moved to a new facilty in 1874, which became know as the 'Granite Lady'.  As one of the few buildings to survive the massive 1906 earthquake and the fires that followed, it remained in operation until 1937.  So it was at this facility that these 1914-S St. Gaudens were struck.
