2009 Ultra-High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin
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 currently sells for $1,289.00 from the U.S. Mint catalog.

My love for coins began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I'm a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG) and have won multiple awards from the NLG for my work as a coin journalist. I'm also the editor at CDN Publishing (a trusted source for the price of U.S. rare coins), editor at the Florida United Numismatists Club (FUN Topics magazine), and author of Images of America: The United States Mint in Philadelphia (a book that explores the colorful history of the Philadelphia Mint). I've contributed hundreds of articles for various coin publications including COINage, The Numismatist, Numismatic News, Coin Dealer Newsletter, Coin Values, and CoinWeek. I've also authored nearly 1,000 articles here at The Fun Times Guide to Coins — and I welcome your coin questions in the comments below!
