The 1933 U.S. Gold Double Eagle, designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, sold for $7.5 million in 2002. This coin has the most tarnished history of fraud, deceit and dubious shenanigans of any coin in history. There should only be two remaining examples but they keep turning up and then being stolen by the US government. In 2004 10 more appeared and their fate is still in limbo. Totally Twilight Zone.
