The story of the “Wells Fargo” Hoard is one of the greatest in American numismatics. In the early 1990s, 9,900 high-quality 1908 $20 No Motto Saint Gaudens coins were discovered in the largest hoard ever found on American soil. Of that group, only 10 survived in the near flawless grade of MS-69!
Prior to the discovery of this hoard, no pre-33 gold coins of any kind were known in MS-69 and to this day it remains a dream grade for collectors of classic numismatic material. The coins were untouched since 1917 and were originally designated as a World War I debt payment. The coins were housed in a Las Vegas, Nevada Wells Fargo bank, which is why they are referred to as the "Wells Fargo" hoard.
The presence of this coin in one’s collection brings ultimate bragging rights. It is reserved for the few extremely special individuals in the right place and at the right time to acquire it.
“The hoard contained thousands of superb Gems graded MS-66 by PCGS, nearly 1000 coins graded MS-67 by PCGS, 101 coins graded MS-68 by PCGS, and 10 virtually perfect gems graded MS69 by PCGS, the only Saints ever graded MS-69 by PCGS. It was the largest hoard of ultra high quality $20 St. Gaudens ever discovered. When we were grading the Wells Fargo $20 Saints at PCGS, we had separated the 10 coins that we felt were graded MS-69. All ten were virtually perfect gems...the most amazingly perfect Saints we had ever seen. We tried real hard to find one of the ten that we could call MS-70. We even narrowed it down to the "best three," but we just couldn't find the one truly perfect coin, though we found ten that were very close and three that were really, really close. Just an absolutely amazing hoard of $20 Saints and the ten MS-69s were truly off the charts!” - D. Hall, PCGS
