After the California gold rush of 1849, the US Mint wanted to put all of its excess gold to use, and that same year congress authorized the production of a $20 gold piece. In 1850, the $20 Liberty Gold Eagle was designed by a famous Chief Engraver for the US Mint. Though the production of these coins was halted in 1907 when it was replaced by the $20 Saint Gaudens Gold Double Eagle, it is still immensely popular amongst collectors today.
