2009 Ultra High Relief Gold Coin

One of the United States most beautiful coins ever minted returned with the 2009 Ultra high relief gold coin that matches those minted in 1907 more than 100 years ago. While the St Gaudens Double Eagle is considered to be a masterpiece in the world of coin art, when it is enhanced with the ultra high relief design, it is an exquisite thing of beauty.

This example of the $20 gold piece from the early 20th century contains one ounce of pure .9999 fine gold. Not only is it a good store of wealth, it goes beyond just the value of the gold it contains, it has a numismatic value because of its rare beauty and exceptional interest as a reproduction of a coin that was removed from circulation so soon after it was initially brought to market. The reason for that was because these coins were not stackable in bank vaults thus bankers did not like to keep many on hand. However, with the new 2009 ultra high relief gold coin that problem has been solved and these treasures are a valuable source of precious metal investment and a collectors item you can pass on for generations.

Here's a description of the coin from the US Mint website:

In January, the United States Mint issued the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin.  This coin promises to fulfill Augustus Saint-Gaudens' vision of an ultra high relief coin that could not be realized in 1907 with his legendary Double Eagle liberty design.

The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin will show the Nation and the world the very best the United States Mint has to offer.  The 21st century vision of the United States Mint, combined with technological advances, enabled the United States Mint to realize the previously unattainable goal of making the coin accessible to all Americans.

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 coin will be made of 24-karat gold.  Pure 24-karat gold is much more malleable than 22-karat or 90% gold coins, making it better material for striking the ultra high relief. Read more...

I think you will probably agree as well that these are some of the most beautiful coins in existence.
