Hunt For The Double Eagle, The 1 x 60'
It’s the most valuable, and infamous, coin in the world, and it has been on the United States Secret Service’s Most Wanted list for over 70 years. This docudrama is the detective story of the 1933 solid gold Double Eagle.

The Double Eagle is more than just a rare coin. It's a lightning rod for history, greed and corruption. Never officially issued, the coin was slated for destruction after being minted, but some Double Eagles escaped the meltdown and immediately became the obsession of billionaires, kings and criminal investigators. We follow the trail of the world's most valuable coin.

We take the viewer on a dramatic investigation that includes: corruption at the US mint, Egypt’s King Farouk, the coins surprising rediscovery in London, a sting at the Walforf Astoria, and its eventual sale for $7m.
