    2009 Ultra High Relief Twenty Dollar
    MS70 Prooflike, Mint Packaging

    2009 $20 Ultra High Relief MS70 Prooflike NGC. Early Releases. A fully struck and immaculate representative of Mint Director Edmund C. Moy's popular bullion issue. Included with the lot is a certificate of authenticity, a small book about the history and production of the ultra high relief Saint-Gaudens design, and a mahogany case in a blue cardboard box, all as issued by the U.S. Mint. The 2009 variety (dated MMIX using Roman numerals) was based on Judd-1917, which was struck on a double-thick ten dollar gold planchet with a lettered edge. Since no examples of Judd-1917 ever left Mint holdings, the famous pattern is non-collectible, but Moy's brainchild provides a means for any numismatist to at least own a close facsimile, albeit with IN GOD WE TRUST added above the sun. Current NGC census shows only 11 MS70 Prooflike Early Releases graded. This phenomenal Ultra High Relief Double Eagle comes with the original U.S. Mint fine mahogany display box, 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Book, and Certificate of Authenticity. (NGC ID# 26S4, Variety PCGS# 506614, Base PCGS# 506602)
