What is the design on this 2009 Gold Ultra High Relief Double Eagle?
Just like on the original issues back in 1907, this coin shows Augustus Saint-Gaudens' original design.

On the reverse is an image of an eagle in flight, with the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "TWENTY DOLLARS."
A high relief strike assured that every detail of the design is present and sharp, and also causes a beautiful shadowing effect under the correct lighting.
