A Breathtaking Rendition of Lady Liberty

The United States Mint American Liberty Program celebrates modern renditions of the iconic Liberty that embody the ideals of freedom and equality first set forth in our Declaration of Independence. In the 227 years since its establishment, the United States Mint has issued a vast array of medals with the concept of Liberty personified by allegorical female figures. More than two centuries of evolution have borne witness to an ever-changing symbol. Today’s American Liberty Medals are reinvigorating this motif with stunning, modern depictions of the allegorical Lady Liberty. Their images maintain our Nation’s intimate connection with its history and founding principles, while at the same time recognizing our forward-looking, diverse and dynamic population and culture. You may recall, the 2017 225th Anniversary High Relief Gold Coin won Best Gold Coin in our 2019 Coin of the Year Awards!
