Charles A. Barber is a famous coin designer and US Mint Chief Engraver, known for creating one of the United States’ most renown coin series: the aptly named Barber Dimes, Quarters, and Half Dollars.

When President Theodore Roosevelt tasked Augustus Saint-Gaudens to create a new $20 Gold Double Eagle design, Barber – the US Mint Chief Engraver at the time – decided to throw his design into the ring. This 1906 Gold Double Eagle Design was not approved and fell into obscurity in the U.S. Mint archives.
