History of 20$ gold Liberty (1849-1907)
Designed by James B. Longacre, the obverse (front) of the $20 Liberty gold coin features Miss Liberty donning a crown inscribed with the word "LIBERTY". Thirteen stars representing the original 13 colonies and the date encircle her.
The reverse (back) features a bald eagle behind a striped shield and at the top "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA"

Without motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" and the denomination is written as "Twenty D."

The 'IN GOD WE TRUST' motto was added to the reverse in 1866 under Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase.
Type 3 (1877-1907)
In 1877, the denomination was changed to read "TWENTY DOLLARS" instead of "TWENTY D."
