U.S. Mint High Relief Gold (2009 & 2015)
U.S. High Relief Gold Eagles - In 1907, Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed what would be a wildly popular coin: the Gold Double Eagle. His design was so loved that it was recreated in 1986 for the U.S. Mint's Gold Eagle bullion series. The beautiful High Relief Gold Eagle 1 oz .9999 fine Gold coin is a triumph in coin design representing the culmination of a partnership between a renowned artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens and visionary leader President Theodore Roosevelt.
The 2009 Ultra High Relief Gold Eagle is a living resemblance of the original Gold Double Eagle design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The High Relief is achieved by using a thicker coin and a smaller diameter allowing for the field (background of the coin) to be concave giving more space for a raised design. Although the dimensions are different than the standard 1 oz coin, this Ultra High Relief version still contains one full ounce of U.S. Gold. This coin is a digitally reproduced version of Saint-Gaudens’ original Ultra High Relief 1907 Double Eagle Gold piece, which was never released into circulation.
The 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin is the latest in that new era, a piece that renders contemporary designs using the latest in modern digital and manufacturing technology. United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Justin Kunz created a modern depiction of Liberty for the obverse (heads side), evoking the ideals of liberty, courage and hope. Artistic Infusion Program artist Paul Balan’s reverse (tails) design depicts an American eagle rising in flight, gripping a branch in its talons as an embodiment of freedom.
