Stunning African-American Liberty design
Justin Kunz designed and Phebe Hemphill sculpted the obverse design. Liberty is shown as a young African-American woman. She faces the left side of the coin and wears a crown of stars, a reference to the same feature on the Statue of Freedom, the iconic statue that stands atop the Capitol Building. Liberty's hair is braided and tied in a bun.
On the reverse, an eagle is shown in flight. Unlike most other coins that feature eagles, its wings are turned downward.
