1907 $20 Saint-Gaudens High Relief Wire Rim PCGS MS63. President Theodore Roosevelt had a long love affair with ancient greek and roman coinage and, not really appreciating the aesthetic qualities of America’s coinage at the time, demanded an overhaul. He put the legendary sculptor Augustus Saint Gaudens to work. It was the masterpiece of two percipient imaginations, working in unison to create one of the most beautiful pieces of art the world had ever seen, and it just so happened to be on a coin. What resulted is one of the most desirable coins of all time. A coin always in-demand with instant liquidity at any time. Approximately 11,450 coins were struck in total of the High Relief design before stacking issues and broken dies made them impractical for regular production.
