Date: 1921 - Inscription: St Gaudens - Question: Value?

This is a replica of the original certified by 2 dealers as having same size and gold content as the original [which I think can be very valuable]

My question has to do with whether this could have a premium value above the melt price as a rarity or comparison piece to a collector or dealer since it is a replica with exact gold content and size as the rare original example

TY all

The link to the left is to a page with the estimated values of a genuine $20 Double Eagle Coin.

Assuming that the dealers are correct that this coin is a replica, I would say that it has a bit more premium value over its melt value, though the amount would vary. I might guess someone might pay an odd $50-100 more for such an example on top of its gold content, seeing as it is a modern coin that is just made out of gold. Though, a collector might just pay more, if he is really after such a coin, it depends on who is interested at the time you are selling it, and how much money they are willing to spend.

Anyways, this is just my opinion of the issue.
