The mystery of the 1933 double eagle will be a topic of one of a new series of 30-minute video programs to be produced by the Smithsonian Institution and Showtime Networks in their jointly owned Smithsonian Networks LLC.

Only one of these rare $20 gold pieces is legal to own privately and it sold for $7.59 million.

The Smithsonian owns two 1933 $20s.

Narrator of this program and what is expected to be a series of 60 programs is Tom Cavanagh, star of television?s ?Ed.??

The series will start in April.

David Royle, executive vice president for programming and production at Smithsonian Networks, said the goal is to do more than ?merely museum television.
