The 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle will be struck in .9999 fine gold. The coins will have a diameter of 27 millimeters and a thickness of 4 millimeters. This is will make the coins thicker than other one ounce gold coins. The coins will be issued only as a business strike and will not be available in proof version. There will be a number of design modifications from the original. On the obverse, the date will be changed to “MMIX” to represent next year’s date in Roman Numerals. The number of stars will be increased from 46 to 50, to represent the current number of US States. On the reverse, the motto “In God We Trust” has been added between the sun and its rays. Both sides of the coin will have a small border to create a more consistent edge. Raised lettering will be used on the edge of the coin. The motto “E Pluribus Unum” will appear with stars between each letter.

I took a trip to Essex last year and spent 7 days metal detecting farm fields. These are my finds. No great treasures or gold, but I did find some silver. Machine used was the MXT, with the stock coil and the Super 12. I also took some videos of the hunts and might post some of that later.
