Medal: US Large St. Gaudens Novelty Piece 1907
The St. Gaudens $20 gold piece is often heralded as 'America's most beautiful coin.' It is the subject of countless copies, reproductions, and replicas. The real coin (see this CoinQuest page [Press Here] for information) is very valuable. The copies, reproductions, and replicas are not valuable.
Requester June describes her coin as '3 inches wide,' so it is certainly not a genuine $20 gold piece. This novelty item is made of gilded zinc and weighs a few ounces, making it one of the classier reproductions. They sell on eBay for a few US dollars.
