2009 Ultra-High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin

2009-Ultra-High-Relief-Double-Eagle-Gold-coin-reverse-photo-public-domain-on-US-Mint.jpgThis beautiful gold coin is a production based off the 1907 Extremely High Relief Double Eagle.

The image on the Ultra-High Relief Double Eagle gold coin was designed by noted sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who originally had intended the double eagle to be struck with a very high relief.

However, production capabilities in the early 1900s would not accommodate mass production of a coin with a relief as high as Saint-Gaudens had desired. Thus, Double Eagles with lower relief designs were produced.

The 2009 Ultra-High Relief Double Eagle coin includes one ounce of 24 karat gold. The 2009 Ultra-High Relief Double Eagle gold coin became available on June 3, 2009. It sold for $1,289.00 from the U.S. Mint catalog.
