In addition to the coin's beauty, I love the history about Teddy Roosevelt and Augustus Saint Gaudens's roles in creating it.
On a somewhat related line of thought, I think that Machine Ghost used to advocate stocking up on what he called "semi-numismatic" coins, which I understood to mean circulated $20 gold pieces. Does anyone here (technovelist?) collect or buy them?
Well, even uncirculated $20s aren't that expensive, assuming you are talking about common dates.
I have one 1908 No motto $20 in uncirculated, just because it is beautiful.
