A direct corollary to the gold coin, the silver medal is supremely notable as it is the FIRST-EVER 2.5 oz. medal released by the United States Mint! The 1 oz. gold coin bears the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint, where they were struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine gold. The 2.5 oz. silver medals were struck at Philadelphia Mint and bear its “P” mint mark.
The gold coin and the silver medal share the same designs, but the inscriptions vary. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty. She wears a headdress that resembles the obverse of the $10 Gold Indian Head, which was issued from 1907-1933. The design was created by Richard Masters and sculpted by US Mint Chief Engraver Joseph Menna. “LIBERTY” and “2019” will be inscribed on both the coin and the medal. The national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST,” will also be included on the coin.
The reverse was designed by Donna Weaver and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso. An eagle is shown in closeup. It looks fierce, and its open talons suggest that it is preparing to land. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” is inscribed along the rim of both pieces. Additional inscriptions are included on the gold coin, including the coin’s weight and purity, “1 OZ. .9999 FINE GOLD,” its face value, “$100,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (From many, one).
Started in 2015, the American Liberty Gold Series has endeavored to portray contemporary and more diverse portrayals of the female personification of "Liberty."
In 2017, the U.S Mint celebrated its 225th anniversary by releasing a $100 Gold Coin that featured the first ever depiction of Liberty as an African American. The coin was highly acclaimed, and collectors who appreciate America’s ethnic and cultural diversity took to the new series. The first year of the issue featured only one-ounce gold coins, which meant that many collectors were priced out of the market. In 2018, the Mint repeated the same design, but also issued a 1/10 oz. version of the coin.
In 2019 the series is breaking new ground with a hefty silver medal-the first ever 2.5 oz. medal to ever be released by the Mint! The new addition to the collection will not only offer an additional way to appreciate the stunning designs of this edition, but will also make the series accessible to even more collectors. Many of whom will also appreciate the rare opportunity to have a coin, which has a face value, and a medal, which does not, with the same designs.
A mintage limit of 50,000 has been set for both the Silver Medal and Gold $100 American Liberty Coin respectively.
