Owner Comments:

A significant drop in mintage occurred with the 1926 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle. Once again struck at three different mint facilities, but total production was around 3.3 million. This was about one third the level of the prior year, although the more important factor for present day collectors is the survival rate.
Similar to other issues of the series, the double eagles struck at Philadelphia have a high survival rate due to the larger numbers which were sent to European banks around the time of issues. Here, they would survive the mass melting that occurred in American during the 1930's, before eventually finding their way back to the US collector market decades later.
