The coin, is a digitally reproduced version of Saint-Gaudens original ultra high relief 1907 Double Eagle gold piece, which was never released into circulation. On the coins obverse, Saint-Gaudens shows Liberty, personified by a statuesque woman striding powerfully forward. A young eagle flying during a sunrise is depicted on the reverse. The original 1907 Double Eagle is considered by many the most beautiful coin ever made in the United States.
But despite Saint-Gaudens artistic masterpiece, the minting process at the time did not allow for the mass production of ultra high relief coins, and Saint-Gaudens artistic vision was never fully realized. In 2008, through 21st century design and technology, the original Saint-Gaudens coin plasters were digitally mapped and the ultra high relief sculpture was updated to reflect the year 2009 in Roman numerals (MMIX), an additional four stars were added to represent the last four states admitted to the Union and the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST , which was not on the 1907 version, was added, along with a small border to provide a more consistent edge.Featured on the raised edge-lettering of the coin is the inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM with the letters separated by stars. The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin is packaged in an elegant mahogany wood box with velvet lining. A wood platform encasing the coin capsule allows the coin to be visible without tilting it.
The box is finished with a high-gloss lacquer and the inscriptions used are in a font similar to those used in the early 1900s when the original coin was produced.
