1907 Saint Gaudens Gold $20 Double Eagle: Ultra High Relief - Lettered Edge - MCMVII

The 1907 Saint-Gaudens Gold $20 Double Eagle is a masterpiece in the world of numismatics, especially in its Ultra High Relief version with the Lettered Edge, prominently featuring the Roman numerals MCMVII (1907).

The early 20th century marked a period of artistic revival and innovation in American coinage. President Theodore Roosevelt sought to enhance the beauty of U.S.

coinage, leading to collaborations with renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the redesign of the eagle and double eagle denominations.

The Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle features a stunning depiction of Liberty on the obverse, holding a torch and an olive branch, with the Capitol building in the background.

The Ultra High Relief version of the 1907 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle was a special production, aiming to achieve a more pronounced three-dimensional effect.

The intricate details of the design were emphasized, creating a coin that stands out for its depth and beauty.

However, the impracticality of mass production led to the modification of the relief in subsequent minting.

The Lettered Edge of the 1907 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle is inscribed with the Roman numerals MCMVII, denoting the year 1907.
