This 2009 issue of Augustus Saint-Gaudens' magnificent Gold Double Eagle is based on the coin's original 1907 design, which was intended to be struck in high relief. After much trial and error, it was determined that minting technology of the day was not advanced enough to produce the coin economically in high relief.
As a result, the high relief design was abandoned, replaced with a regular strike for the coin's minting. More than a century later, Saint-Gaudens' original design has be realized, struck from 1 Troy oz. 999 fine gold, with a final mintage of 115,178.Classic design enhanced with an Ultra High Relief Strike. The obverse features the powerful image of Lady Liberty within a fifty-star border, confidently striding forward carrying a torch and olive branch, the rising sun's rays and the U. Capitol building in the background.
"LIBERTY" stretches overhead, "MMIX" to the right. The reverse illustrates a magnificent flying eagle with a rising sun in the background, accompanied by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "TWENTY DOLLARS" above, with "IN GOD WE TRUST" below.
