When most people outside of the United States think of America, the image of the Statue of Liberty comes to mind almost immediately. France gave the Statue of Liberty to the people of the United States as a gift, and it was installed in New York Harbor during the 1880s. Lady Liberty has stood guard in that water for over 130 years, welcoming millions of immigrants to American shores and holding a light aloft for all those seeking freedom.

The 1 oz Saint Gaudens Copper Round borrows the design of the famous $20 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle coin. The original coin was first struck by the United States Mint in 1907, and was in circulation through 1933. Augustus Saint-Gaudens was the man behind the design of Lady Liberty that was featured on the coin. Today, his famous image lives on most famously on the obverse side of the Gold American Eagle Coin, the official gold bullion coin of the United States.
On the obverse side of the 1 oz Saint Gaudens Copper Round is the sculptor’s famous image of Lady Liberty. She can be seen walking toward the viewer, with the city of Washington D.C. at her feet and the rising sun at her back. In one hand she holds a torch aloft, while clutching an olive branch in the other. Stars engraved around the rim represent all US states. There is one engraving on this side and it reads “Liberty.”
The reverse side of the coin features another famous design from Saint-Gaudens. This time, the image used on his 1907 Gold Double Eagle coin appears on the silver round. In it, a solo eagle can be seen flying over a setting sun, with the American flag in front of the eagle. Engravings on this side include the metal content, weight, and purity of the round.
