Coin arrives in a lacquered display box with protective outer box. About This Coin: The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle was created to realize sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens original vision for the nations signature gold coin. Unfortunately, the coins design was not technologically feasible to strike for circulation in 1907. The coin itself is struck in 24-karat gold, which is much more malleable than 22-karat gold, which allows for easier striking. The original design has been updated with an additional stars representing the 4 states added since 1907, and the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST added above the sun on the reverse.
Additionally, the coin was struck on a smaller diameter planchet (27 vs 34mm) to allow for a higher relief. Aside from those three changes, the coin represents the final realization of Augustus Saint Gaudens gorgeous design.
