What this coin looks like (obverse, reverse, mint mark location, special features, etc.):
1866 was a transitional year for the $20 Liberty Head Gold Double Eagle where the design on the reverse of the coin was changed to include the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" within the circle of stars above the eagle. Depicted above is the original "No Motto" variety without this motto - which is the rarer and more valuable variety. The San Francisco Mint also produced a "With Motto" variety later in 1866 as well.
The 1866-S Coronet Head Gold $20 Double Eagle is worth $5,023 in average condition and can be worth $177,046 or more in uncirculated mint condition. Click here to learn how to use coin price charts.
