In 1933, 445,500 specimens were minted but none were ever officially circulated with all but two being ordered to be melted down. However, prior to being melted down, twenty more are known to have been stolen, finding their way into the hands of collectors. Nine of these recovered coins were destroyed.

With only 13 known specimens remaining, the 1933 double eagle is one of the world’s rarest coins. The two intentionally spared coins are now part of the US Na- tional Numismatic Collection while ten others are held in the United States Bullion Depository at Fort Knox. The remaining coin was sold in 2002 to a private collector, American shoe designer Stuart Weitzman (anonymously at the time) for $7.59m (equivalent to $12.2m in 2022)—the second-highest price paid at auction for a single US coin. The coin sold again at auction in June 2021 for $18.8m.
