The front of the round features the artwork of Anthony Di Francisci, whose design had been the winning entry in a contest to create the new half dollar coin. Francisci’s rendition of Lady Liberty is believed to offer the most accurate portrayal of the real life Statue of Liberty. With her trademark “radiate” or multiple point crown and the wind ruffling several loose strands of her hair, Francisci wanted his portrayal of Liberty to be consistent with the figure that greets each new American Citizen as they arrived at Ellis Island. In the background behind her, he engraved the words “In God We Trust” as message of hope to those people. Also engraved along the edge of the round are her name accompanied by the coin’s original mintage year of “1921.”
The reverse side of the round also borrows its design from the original Peace Dollar Coin. In this image there is a bald eagle who is facing away from the viewer as it stands atop its nest. Above the bird is our country’s name and the phrase “E Pluribus Unum.” To provide as accurate a replica as possible, the mint has stamped the original denomination of “One Dollar” to the bottom of the round with the word “Copy” just underneath.
