2009 US St. Gaudens Double Eagle Ultra High Relief 1-oz Gold Coin
|Gold Content||1 oz.|
|Series||St. Gaudens Double Eagle|
|Year of Issue||2009|
The original 1907 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is considered by many to be the most beautiful coin ever made in the United States. The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin fulfills Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ vision of an ultra high relief coin that could not be realized with 1907's technology with his legendary Double Eagle liberty design.
Through 21st century technology and the vision of Director Ed Moy, original Saint-Gaudens coin plasters were digitally mapped by the United States Mint. Using the digital design and die-making process, the Saint-Gaudens sculpture — in ultra high relief — has been updated to reflect the year 2009, an additional four stars to represent the current 50 states, and the inscription “In God We Trust,” which was not on the 1907 version. Additionally, a small border was added for a more consistent edge.
The 2009 US St. Gaudens Double Eagle Ultra High Relief 1oz Gold Coin was struck by the US Mint in the year 2009 and belongs to the St. Gaudens Double Eagle series of gold bullion coins. Each 24 carat fine gold coin contains 1 troy ounce (31.1035 grams) of gold and is legal tender with a face value of $20.
