Features of the 1861-S $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle Shipwreck SS Republic NGC AU55:

The coin originates from the SS Republic, a Civil War-era steamship that sank in 1865 off the coast of Georgia. Discovered in 2003 by Odyssey Marine Exploration, the wreck yielded a treasure trove of gold and silver coins, including this remarkable Double Eagle.

The 1861-S Double Eagle was minted during a tumultuous period in American history, just as the nation was descending into the Civil War. These coins played a significant role in the country's economy during a time of great upheaval.

Having spent over a century submerged on the ocean floor, the coins recovered from the SS Republic underwent extensive preservation efforts to protect their historical integrity. Despite their underwater journey, these coins have retained much of their original detail and luster.

Each SS Republic coin serves as a tangible link to the past, offering insight into the economic and cultural landscape of 19th-century America. Owning one of these coins allows collectors to connect with history in a tangible and profound way.
