Washington — The United States Mint is opening sales for the 2019 American Liberty high relief gold coin (product code 19DA) on August 15 at noon EDT. This coin is struck at the West Point Mint, contains one ounce of 99.99 percent fine, 24-karat gold and has an enhanced Uncirculated finish.
The 2019 American Liberty high relief gold coin continues the celebration of modern renditions of the iconic figure of Liberty. Its predecessor — the 2017 225th Anniversary high relief gold coin — won Best Gold Coin in Krause Publications’ 2019 Coin of the Year Awards.
The obverse (heads) of this coin features Liberty with 13 rays of light emanating along her headdress, symbolizing the free and creative spirit of America’s people. Inscriptions are LIBERTY, 2019, and IN GOD WE TRUST.
The reverse (tails) design features a bald eagle as it prepares to land. The inscriptions are $100, E PLURIBUS UNUM, 1 OZ., .9999 FINE GOLD, and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Each coin is packaged in a black hand-lacquered hardwood presentation. A certificate of authenticity (COA) is included. Mint Director David J. Ryder autographed a limited number of the COAs.
Pricing for the American Liberty high relief gold coin is determined according to the range in which it appears on the Mint’s “Pricing of Numismatic Gold, Commemorative Gold, Platinum, and Palladium Products” table. The 2019 table is available here.
Mintage of 2019 American Liberty high relief gold coin is limited to 50,000 units. Orders will be limited to one per household.
