The 1907 double eagle was widely considered the most beautiful coin ever designed. It was originally supposed to be struck in high relief, but doing so proved difficult and inefficient. Consequently, just a few coins were struck that way.In 2009, the US Mint revived the design to give collectors the chance to own the piece as it was originally intended. While executed in Ultra High Relief, this coin does have a few differences from the original, For one, the 2009 coin was struck from. It also included the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST, " and four more stars than the original design to account for states that have since joined the union. This coin was part of a mintage of 115,000 pieces. Featuring Augustus Saint-Gaudens's Iconic Liberty Design. The obverse bears Augustus Saint-Gaudens's most famous design, which takes its name, the Saint-Gaudens, from him. Liberty stands at the center facing the holder as her long hair and loose garment blow in the wind. She holds her torch, a beacon of freedom for oppressed people throughout the world, in her right hand and an olive branch, which is universally recognized as a symbol of peace, in her left hand. She stands against a backdrop of the rays of the morning sun, which spread out behind her. Fifty stars encircle the image along the rim. Inscriptions on this face include "LIBERTY" and the date, 2009. An eagle soars high in the sky on Saint-Gaudens' reverse. As with the obverse, the rays of the sun spread out behind it. The national motto is inscribed just above the sun itself on the bottom. Inscriptions at the top note the coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, " and face value, TWENTY DOLLARS.
