The U.S. Mint will release a high relief gold $100 coin and a companion silver medal. Special submission instructions must be followed. See the “Submission Instructions” section of this article.
The obverse of the coin and medal was designed by Richard Masters, an artist with the U.S. Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program. The design features an impressive stylized portrait of Liberty with flowing hair. Masters’ design was sculpted by U.S. Mint Chief Sculptor-Engraver Joseph F. Menna.
The reverse of the coin and medal was designed by Donna Weaver, another Artistic Infusion Program artist, and features an imposing eagle with its talons gripped. U.S. Mint Sculptor-Engraver Michael Gaudioso sculpted Weaver’s design.
The one-ounce of .9999 fine gold is being struck at the West Point Mint. The silver medal is being struck at the Philadelphia Mint and is the first 2.5-ounce medal ever produced by the U.S. Mint.
