Why add this Mint State 70 2016 France 130th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty 1 oz. Silver Medal to your collection?

In 1896, France issued a medal to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the completion of the Statue of Liberty. This 2016 silver medal is similar to the original, but it was issued for the 130th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty. Struck by the Paris Mint, mintage of this 1 oz. medal was limited to 400 pieces. It was struck with the utmost concern for quality and detail, and this coin easily achieved the highest grade of Mint State 70.

Detailed symbolic designs

The obverse shows a pair of shields and an olive branch along with a small portrait of a man. This man is Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and he designed the Statue of Liberty. The inscription on this side is different than the original, the words "UNITED TO PROTECT OUR LIBERTIES" can be seen here.

The design on the reverse depicts 3 figures along with the Statue of Liberty. The Franco-American Union is also mentioned at the top, which is the group that was created for the construction of the statue.

The unique mintage number of every coin has been struck onto its smooth edge.

Mint State 70

This medal was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for grading. Since it is completely flawless, it received the grade of Mint State 70. The individual serial number of each coin has been recorded by NGC on each label.

Beautiful Mint coin with low mintage
These are new 'rare' coins; only 400 minted by Paris Mint. Beautiful design, and mine was an MS70 .

MS70 French 130 year Statue of Liberty Medal
This is a beautiful coin struck in very restricted quantities. It does express the original participants in very fine detail with less relief, I think, than many recent U.S. and Australian strikes. This is not a complaint. The resulting medal is rich in minute figuring needing multiple viewings to sort out all that is there. I wish it were in my hand right now so I could describe it more fully. The coin could be thought of as busy if it was less balanced in design.

It was an impulse buy caused by my love of the Statue itself. Through a freak of timing, I may be the last non-official to be given access to the Lady's extended arm when we returned from Germany in October of 1961. Though access to the arm was closed in 1917, the chance meeting with the mechanic responsible for its maintenance was there in the crown and the door was open. My father argued as Americans serving in Germany during the construction of the Berlin Wall and the Cuban missile crisis, a step beyond the door would serve as a memory offsetting the tensions of our three year tour under frequent threats to our personal safety. Short steps and a moment in my personal history, not to be forgotten.

Edit as you must. Sorry for my rambling.

Review of Modern Coin Mart (MCM) supplied coins.
Great beautiful coin. Almost as good as the American Eagle.

Statue of Liberty Commemorative Medal - Paris Mint
Beautiful coin! Incredible detail on both the obverse and reverse side.
Was hesitant at first to order this coin. Sure glad I did and I don't regret it one bit.
Great addition to any collection. Very low mintage adds to its appeal.
