The United States Mint fulfilled renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original vision of an ultra high relief double eagle gold coin with the release of the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin, closing one era of classic American coin design and ushering in a new one.

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 has 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.

The 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin represents our proud numismatic heritage and glimmering future at their very best.

Containing one troy ounce of .9999 fine 24–karat gold, these lustrous high relief coins are among the world’s purest gold coins. Each is encapsulated and presented in a black velvet presentation case and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. It will be a treasured addition to any collection.  Get yours TODAY!

  1. The eagle is beautifully detailed and worthy of St. Gaudens’ legacy. The obverse is blah.
