Exquisite Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

Obverse: The obverse design takes its name from its creator, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. With her garment blowing in a strong breeze, Liberty holds her torch in one hand and her olive branch in the other as she stands confidently facing the holder. In the background, the rays of the morning sun spread out behind her, making her appear larger than life. Her name, "LIBERTY," and the date, "2022," are both inscribed on this face. Augustus Saint-Gaudens was born in Ireland and immigrated to the United States. He trained in both the United States and Europe and founded a community of artists known as the Cornish Colony.

Reverse: The reverse features a highly detailed rendering of a bald eagle by Jennie Norris. Both statutory mottoes, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," are inscribed above. Along the rim, inscriptions provide the issuing country's name, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's face value, "5 DOLLARS," and its weight, "1/10 OZ FINE GOLD." Jennie Norris works with graphite, liquid graphite, and watercolor primarily. She is a graphic designer and has won awards for fine art.

Impeccable PF70 UC FDI with Black Core Holders and Norris/Ryder/Mercanti Signature Labels

All three coins in this set earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Proof 70. That grade is only given to coins that appear perfect even under 5x magnification. The coins were also certified both Ultra Cameo (UC) and First Day of Issue (FDI). The FDI certification is only given to coins that were submitted for grading within 24 hours of their official release, while the UC designation indicates that the coins exhibit particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields. Former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti, David Ryder, two-time Director of the US Mint, and Jennie Norris each signed one of the labels on which grading information is provided. The coins are set in black core holders.
