This week on the CoinWeek Podcast, numismatic researcher and author David Tripp joins us to talk about the 1933 Double Eagle. You know that the 1933 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is the most notorious coin in the U.S. series, but do you really know the coin that the FBI spent more than 60 years pursuing? We talk to David about the one example of this notorious coin that the government couldn’t keep.

  1. The quality of this podcast, from the David Tripp side, was terrible! It was a shame because the subject and David’s commentary (that I could understand) was fascinating.

    Maybe there’s a way to restore it and replublish?
