2009 $20 Ultra High Relief NGC MS 70 PL
Complete with Original Boxes and Certificate of Authenticity

Population of ONLY 23 coins graded in 70 PL!

Up for auction is the EXTREMELY RARE 2009 $20 Ultra High Relief NGC MS 70 PROOF LIKE! Yes, you read it correctly a PERFECT NGC MS 70 PL. We have sent in for grading over 500 of these Ultra High Reliefs. This is only the second one that I have had. The Population of NGC MS 70 PL is only 23 coins. That means that as of today ONLY 23 people in the world could own a 2009 $20 Ultra High Relief in NGC-MS 70 Proof Like! I am a dealer that purchases 1000's of coins a day and have owned hundreds of these Ultra High Reliefs. This is only the second one in NGC MS 70 PL that I have had the pleasure of owning! I have inspected all coins that I have purchased and I thought many were PL quality. But, NGC is very very tough on grading these coins PL. Both the Obverse and Reverse have to be bright and and have a FULL mirror effect. Many of the coins that NGC rejected as PL were only Proof Like on the Obverse NOT the Reverse. This coin is perfect and has UNBELIEVABLE Orange peel proof

Sorry for the pictures. I did my best, but the reflective fields make it very hard to get a good picture. Just know that the coin is PERFECT and fully Proof Like on Obverse and reverse. T are NO SPOTS, TONING or MARKS of any kind!

Please Note: I have removed the serial number from the image so that the winner of the auction will have a fresh NON registered coin. I would be happy to email the winner with the serial number after the auction.

Thank you and Good Luck!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email or call.

2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin (UH1)

The United States Mint is proud to offer the public the opportunity to own a beautiful 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin. This one-ounce, 24-karat gold coin is a triumph in coin design representing the culmination - more than a century in the making - of a partnership between a renowned artist, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and a visionary leader, President Theodore Roosevelt. The coin, is a digitally reproduced version of Saint-Gaudens’ original ultra high relief 1907 Double Eagle gold piece, which was never released into circulation.

On the coin’s obverse, Saint-Gaudens shows Liberty, personified by a statuesque woman striding powerfully forward. A young eagle flying during a sunrise is depicted on the reverse. The original 1907 Double Eagle is considered by many the most beautiful coin ever made in the United States. But despite Saint-Gaudens artistic masterpiece, the minting process at the time did not allow for the mass production of ultra high relief coins, and Saint-Gaudens’ artistic vision was never fully realized. In 2008, through 21st century design and technology, the original Saint-Gaudens’ coin plasters were digitally mapped and the ultra high relief sculpture was updated to reflect the year 2009 in Roman numerals (MMIX), an additional four stars were added to represent the last four states admitted to the Union and the inscription IN GOD WE TRUST, which was not on the 1907 version, was added, along with a small border to provide a more consistent edge. Featured on the raised edge-lettering of the coin is the inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM with the letters separated by stars.

The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin is packaged in an elegant mahogany wood box with velvet lining. A wood platform ...
