2009 US Mint Commemorative Gold , 1 0z., w/mahogany case and booklet. Double planchet , this coin was to commemorate the $20 gold coins designed by Augustus St. Gaudens at the request of Theodore Roosevelt. Issued by the US Mint in 2009 only, this is a highly desired collectible. It comes in the original mahogany box, and is accompanied with the booklet giving the history of the original coins issued in 1907. Known as "High Rellief", the original coins were redesigned for the following year in that they would not stack well. Production of "Saints" ran from 1907-1933. This double planchet issue reflects accurately the design as proffered by St. Gaudens. He did not live to see the results of his design, having passed prior to distribution. Proof like and a first issue,(among the earliest minted)_this coin is a "key" among the issue.
