Why buy this Copper Proof (2017) United States William Barber 1877 Half-Union Pattern 1 oz. AVDP Medal

This 1 oz. AVDP Copper Proof (2017) United States William Barber 1877 Half-Union Pattern Medal is ideal for collectors who appreciate the rich history of American numismatics. The designs were created for a proposed Half-Union coin in 1877 and are modified versions of James Longacre's Liberty Head Double Eagle.

Stunning Liberty Design by William Barber

Chief Engraver of the United States Mint William Barber designed both faces of this coin, though the ideas behind them originated from James Longacre. Liberty is depicted in left-side portrait on the obverse. She wears a ribbon that bears an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY." Thirteen stars arch over the image along the rim, while the date, "1877," is inscribed at the bottom.

An eagle guards a large union shield on the reverse. Its wings are outstretched, and it holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed above its head and is encircled by thirteen stars.

Impeccable PF70 UC RD Smithsonian Label

This coin received the highest grade given out by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), Proof 70 (PF70), which means that it is in perfect condition. NGC provided that grade and their certification of the piece as an Ultra Cameo on a Smithsonian label.
