This is the closest most of us can get to owning a real 1933 double eagle, and with a full oz. of fine gold to boot! (Struck on a 1 oz. maple leaf.) This is what the 1986-present American eagle "should" have looked like. A beautiful tribute to Saint Gauden's design and Mr. Carr's talent and expertise with his coin press.
