This design by Adolph Weinman is among the most beloved and recognized in American coinage designs. The obverse features Lady Liberty walking toward a sunrise with her right arm outstretched, representing the spreading of Liberty, hope, and a brighter future for all. She is surrounded by the Stars and Stripes as she clutches branches of laurel and oak in her left hand.
John Mercanti of the U.S. Mint created the reverse design, featuring an iconic rendering of the American Eagle and shield design. The Eagle clutches arrows and an olive branch in its claws, while appearing beneath 13 five-pointed stars, which represent the original colonies.
