2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL COIN EVER CREATED

At World's Fair Of Money In Baltimore
US Mint hat geschrieben:The United States Mint has chosen the Nation's largest coin show in Baltimore, Md., this summer to provide a Golden Moment for visitors, unveiling the much-anticipated 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin-a modern version of what many call the most beautiful gold piece ever created - the 1907 Double Eagle. The exhibit at the United States Mint booth will show the development of this modern masterpiece-from its origin as gold bars-through test strikes-to the finished, one-ounce 24-karat (.9999 pure) 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin.

United States Mint Director Ed Moy will participate in the Opening Ceremony of the American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money on Wednesday, July 30, 2008, at 9:30 a.m. ET and then officially open the United States Mint exhibit. The news media are welcome.

Aided by advancements in technology, the United States Mint now can produce, in quantity, the ultra high relief coin envisioned, but never fully realized, by renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. The new collectible coin will be about 50 percent thicker than other United States Mint one-ounce gold coins to achieve the greater depth and relief to which Saint-Gaudens aspired. Visitors will be able to feel the ultra high relief on plasters of the coin that will be featured at the exhibit.

The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin exhibit will remain throughout the week at the United States Mint booth on the bourse floor at the World's Fair of Money. The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin will be available for sale to the public early next year. There will be no mintage limit. The coins only will be issued in 2009. The new 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin will have the designation of a nominal denomination of $20, but the sales price will depend on prevailing world gold prices.

Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson announced that pursuant to Public Law: 31 U.S.C. § 5112(i)(4) the United States Mint will issue a one-ounce ultra-high relief 24-karat gold coin, creating a 2009 version of what many have called the most beautiful gold piece ever made: the Ultra High Relief Saint-Gaudens $20 Double Eagle.

The mintage of the new coin will be unlimited for one year. Among the production specifications approved by Secretary Paulson are the new coin’s business-strike finish and a diameter of 27 millimeters, making the new collectible coin about 50 percent thicker than other United States Mint one-ounce gold coins.

Only 2009-dated coins will be minted. The coins will go on sale in early 2009, although sales may continue into 2010 if inventory exists.

United States Mint Director Ed Moy will participate in the Opening Ceremony of the American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money on Wednesday, July 30, 2008, at 9:30 a.m. ET

Visitors will be able to feel the ultra high relief on plasters of the coin that will be featured at the Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin exhibit at the United States Mint booth on the bourse floor at the World’s Fair of Money.

US Mint hat geschrieben: United States Mint at West Point Begins Producing 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin

WEST POINT, N.Y. -The United States Mint at West Point invited officials from numismatic organizations and reporters to witness the historic first production strike of the highly anticipated 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin today. The new 24-karat (.9999 pure) gold coin is a modern version of what many call the most beautiful gold piece ever created-Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ 1907 Double Eagle. The United States Mint will begin taking orders for the new collectible gold coin early next year.

United States Mint Director Ed Moy struck the first coin, which will be transferred to the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History. He struck a second coin as an addition to the United States Mint’s heritage assets.

“This gold ultra high relief coin, evoking Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ 1907 Double Eagle with Liberty striding forward, is one of the world’s most beautiful coins,” Director Moy told the crowd. “The United States Mint is proud to render the vision of President Theodore Roosevelt and Augustus Saint-Gaudens in a way that honors our past and raises the bar for the future. One hundred years from now, I believe the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin will be remembered as the birth of the greatest American century in coin-making history.”

In the early 1900s, President Roosevelt called for a “renaissance” in American coinage. He thought the coins of that era were unattractive and wanted them to embody the national identity of the United States and its preeminence on the world stage. Roosevelt chose Augustus Saint-Gaudens to redesign America’s coins. Saint-Gaudens was a renowned sculptor and artist who shared the President’s vision for expressing America’s national identity visually through art. However, despite Saint-Gaudens’ masterful design for a $20 gold piece with ultra high relief, it could not be mass produced using the technology of that era.

Now, aided by advancements in technology, the United States Mint can produce, in quantity, the ultra high relief coin envisioned, but never fully realized, by Roosevelt and Saint-Gaudens in 1907. Through 21st century technology, original Saint-Gaudens coin plasters were digitally mapped by the United States Mint. The Saint-Gaudens sculpture - in ultra high relief - has been updated to reflect the year 2009; four stars have been added to represent the current 50 states; and the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST, which was not on the 1907 version, will be on the reverse (tails side) of the coin. Additionally, a small border was added for a more consistent edge. The 2009 coin will be made of 24-karat gold. The new 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin will have the nominal denomination of $20.

The sales price for the coin has not been determined; it will depend, in part, on prevailing world gold prices.
