Patriotic African-American Liberty design by Justin Kunz
Justin Kunz designed the obverse as a symbol of the fact that freedom and other American values are meant for all. To that end, he portrays Liberty as an African-American. Her hair is braided and tied up in a bun. A crown of stars sits atop her head, and the anniversary years are inscribed on either side of her image.
On the reverse, a bald eagle is depicted in mid-flight. The national symbol bears a look of steely determination, and its wings point downward, indicating that the bird is flying toward a goal rather than just gliding.
Virtually impeccable Proof 69 Ultra Cameo First Day of Issue with American Flag Liberty label
This medal was awarded the second highest available grade, Proof 69, by the experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That means that it has a minuscule imperfection or two but no such imperfections can be seen without magnification. NGC printed the grade along with their Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue certifications on a label that bears an American flag.
