The 2009 Ultra High Relief (UHR) Double Eagle recognized Augustus Saint-Gaudens original vision for the nations signature gold coin. Unfortunately, the sculptors' original design was not technologically feasible to strike in 1907. In 2009, the US Mint made three subtle changes then struck this masterpiece. The first change was that t.
He coin is struck in 24-karat gold, to allow for an easier strike. The second change was a design update to add 4 stars to represent the 4 states added since 1907, and the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST was added above the sun on the reverse. The final change was to strike the gold coin on a smaller diameter planchet of 27mm (vs 34mm) size to permit a higher relief.
