During his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt felt that the coinage of the United States was inferior compared to the designs of many foreign nations, especially when compared to the coinage of ancient Greece. A nation as great as the United States should have a currency that would reflect its greatness. Roosevelt arranged for Augusts Saint Gaudens (considered one of the best sculptors of the time) to redesign the coinage of the United States.

Description

During his presidency, Theodore Roosevelt felt that the coinage of the United States was inferior compared to the designs of many foreign nations, especially when compared to the coinage of ancient Greece. A nation as great as the United States should have a currency that would reflect its greatness. Roosevelt arranged for Augusts Saint Gaudens (considered one of the best sculptors of the time) to redesign the coinage of the United States. This Double Eagle is one of only two designs that he was able to complete before his death, and many consider this to be the most beautiful coin ever minted by the U.S. Mint. These coins were produced at the mints in San Francisco, Denver and Philadelphia.
