    Description

    Born in Dublin, Ireland on March 1, 1848, Augustus Saint-Gaudens’s influence over American sculpture was considerable.  During his apprenticeships, he attended both Cooper Union and the National Academy of Design, studying drawing.  In 1867 he left for Europe where he studied in both Paris and Rome before returning to the U.S.

    Saint-Gaudens took great interest in the “art of the coin”:  his $20 gold piece, the double eagle coin he designed for the U.S. Mint, though it was adapted for minting was first struck in 1907, in ultra-high relief (only 20 minted).  The coin took up to eleven strikes to bring up the detail.  The ultra-high relief did not strike properly and was deemed impractical for commerce.  The design was then flattened and a high-relief version was minted.  Even though it took eight strikes less, it was still considered impractical for commerce.  The coin was finally modified to a normal-relief version, which was minted from 1907-1933.  It is still considered to be one of the most beautiful American coins ever issued.

     

    • Contains 2 oz. Troy of .999 Fine Silver
    • Obverse: Lady Liberty holding a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other, stepping forward, with an array of rays behind, and a depiction of the US Capital Building to the lower left and a surround of stars and the word “LIBERTY” across the top.
    • Reverse: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” encircling the top of the coin, and the words “TWO TROY OUNCES” just under.  A left-facing eagle in flight below with a sun at the bottom and rays spreading across the entire field behind.

      This is how a $20 Saint Gaudens high relief should look. You guys nailed it! Your blowing other Mint’s out of the water with the quality and designs of your rounds.

      I saw this High-Relief St Gaudens on SalivateMetal’s Youtube channel and had to get one. Now that I have it in-hand, it is AMAZING – BEAUTIFUL – FLAWLESS! I thought they’d look cool, based on the pictures here, but now that I see them and am holding one in my own hand — it’s stunningly beautiful. The font is just right, the eagle (rev) and liberty (obv) are like a perfect version. Honestly, it could not be any better! And I really like the frosted finish of the coin. I’m not sure if the planchet or the dies give it that finish, but it is about as perfect as it could be. Honestly, it is BETTER than the US Mint could produce. I’m addicted! I also bought the Mercury dime in 50mm 2 oz-t and the high-relief 39mm 2 oz-t versions, and each of them is seriously stunning! These are my new favorite rounds – and it’s not even close!

      These Intaglio St. Gaudens rounds are a true and beautiful rendering of this famous design. The high relief and remarkable artistic quality really make this round a stunning piece. It is a an honorable depiction of what I think this design should be.

      The detail and design of these will exceed any Saint in your collection. I really don’t know how they do it.
      I’ve been collecting Intaglio’s U.S. Modern Tributes for some time and have always had my expectations exceeded. If you collect rounds, collect these.
