This 20-dollar gold piece from the New Orleans Mint is a beauty.
Technically, it's known as a 1856-O AU55 PCGS Secure Liberty Double Eagle
It was thought to be the rarest issue from the New Orleans Mint, but apparently its 1854-0 counterpart is right up there, too. Only 23 examples are thought to exist of this coin.
Want to own one? King Farouk did, back in 1943, for $135. Recently, though, this example sold for $364,250.
It was part of nearly $14 million in coins, sold at Heritage Auctions' June 2016 Long Beach, CA Expo.
