Augustus Saint-Gaudens submitted his Liberty design to the United States Mint in 1907. Saint-Gaudens had previously endured negative work experiences with the US Mint and Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber, but he nonetheless answered the president’s call to submit designs for consideration on US currency. His Liberty design was eventually modified for circulation coinage by lowering the relief of the strike so US Mint equipment could strike the designs in one blow.
On the obverse side of each 1 oz Copper SilverTowne Saint-Gaudens Round, you will find the primary image of Liberty that Saint-Gaudens created back in 1907. It focuses on the figure of Liberty in a free-flowing robe with her hair blowing in the wind as she walks toward the viewer. She holds a large torch in her right hand to light the way and carries an olive branch in her left hand. A ring of 50 stars encircles her figure as rays of sunshine emanate from the background field.
The reverse face of Copper SilverTowne Saint-Gaudens Rounds comes with a common design used on other copper rounds from the mint. Here, an American bald eagle is depicted swooping down with its back to the viewer, its wings spread out wide, and its talons reaching out to grab its prey.
SilverTowne was founded in Winchester, Indiana, in 1949 as a small coin shop. That operation grew over time to become a private mint that issues a wide range of silver rounds, silver bars, copper rounds, and copper bars, in addition to acting as an authorized dealer for bullion coins.
