A modern version of the famous United States 1907 Ultra High Relief double eagle gold pattern was produced in 2009 at the Philadelphia Mint. It was made to demonstrate how technical advances in minting techniques can now accommodate manufacturing such a coin. The original design was never made for commercial use because it was at the time impossible to make it in sufficient quantities. Through 21st-century technology the original Saint-Gaudens plasters were digitally mapped by the Mint and used in the die-making process. The date was changed to 2009, and four additional stars were added to represent the current 50 states.
Also included was the inscription "In God We Trust" which was not used on the 1907 version. The item "2009 ULTRA HIGH RELIEF $20 ST GAUDENS DOUBLE EAGLE COIN NGC MS70 PERFECT" is in sale since Sunday, November 11, 2018.
