Adolph A. Weinman design

The obverse image on this coin features Liberty traversing the rugged American Landscape. She is wrapped in the Flag as she carries oak and laurel branches. These are symbols of unity, strength and prosperity that she shares over the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. The reverse features the image of a Bald Eagle that is preparing to fly. Adolph A. Weinman was a well-known artist who designed the "Mercury" dime and was a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
