2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Twenty Dollar Coin

CoinTrapTM Commentary: Now here is one whopper of a coin! The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle $20 coin packs a big punch, one-ounce, 24-karat gold, and astoundingly beautiful. Famed artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the original version of the 1907 Double Eagle gold piece, after which this coin was digitally reproduced, and imprinted with the same stunning images.  While the original 1907 Double Eagle was never released into public circulation, Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ legacy lives on, forever immortalized in this timeless gold treasure.  The obverse shows a strident woman, Lady Liberty, torch in one hand, and an olive branch in the other hand. The capitol dome adorns the background.  On the reverse, a young eagle flies in the midst of a sunrise.  Around the edge of the coin, the motto “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” or in other words, “Out of Many, One” is written. Own the Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Twenty Dollar Coin--and be happy. Augustus Saint-Gaudens died in 1907.

    [[Page 119 STAT. 2664]]

    Public Law 109-145
    109th Congress

                                     An Act

    To require the Secretary of the Treasury to mint coins in commemoration
    of each of the Nation's past Presidents and their spouses, respectively,
    to improve circulation of the $1 coin, to create a new bullion coin, and
           for other purposes. <<NOTE: Dec. 22, 2005 -  [S. 1047]>>

       Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the
    United States of America in Congress assembled, <<NOTE: Presidential $1
    Coin Act of 2005.>>

    SECTION <<NOTE: 31 USC 5101 note.>> 1. SHORT TITLE.

       This Act may be cited as the ``Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005''.

                         TITLE I--PRESIDENTIAL $1 COINS

    SEC. 101. <<NOTE: 31 USC 5112 note.>> FINDINGS.

       Congress finds the following:

    . . .

    (10) In order to revitalize the
           design of United States coinage and return circulating coinage
           to its position as not only a necessary means of exchange in
           commerce, but also as an object of aesthetic beauty in its own
           right, it is appropriate to move many of the mottos and emblems,
           the inscription of the year, and the so-called ``mint marks''
           that currently appear on the 2 faces of each circulating coin to
           the edge of the coin, which would allow larger and more dramatic
           artwork on the coins reminiscent of the so-called ``Golden Age
           of Coinage'' in the United States, at the beginning of the
           Twentieth Century, initiated by President Theodore Roosevelt,
           with the assistance of noted sculptors and medallic artists
           James Earle Fraser and Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

    . . .

    Approved December 22, 2005.
