When Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the Gold Double Eagle image in 1907, he intended for his design to feature on a high-relief strike. This would deliver a 3D visual that would capture the eye and the imagination. Unfortunately, the United States Mint did not have the ability to adequately and accurately strike high-relief coins in 1907. By 2009, the US Mint most certainly did. Today, 2009 Ultra High Relief Gold Double Eagle Coins are available to you online at Silver.com.

On the obverse side of 2009 Ultra High Relief Gold Double Eagles, you’ll find the design of Lady Liberty. The vision of Liberty included here was originally found on the Gold Double Eagle circulation coin from 1907 to 1933. It includes Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks forward with a torch in one hand, an olive branch in the other, and the US Capitol Building visible at her feet below.
The reverse face of 2009 Ultra High Relief Gold Double Eagle Coins from the United States Mint include the original design from Saint-Gaudens. This includes an American bald eagle in flight over the nation as it soars in a glide path. The sun rises over the horizon to meet the gliding American bald eagle.
