Each of the 2 oz Silver Standing Freedom Silver Shield Rounds in this listing come from the Silver Shield Collection at Golden State Mint. The designs in the collection are meant to connect with particular sentiments relating to controversial issues from the past and present in human society. The Standing Freedom design is one such example and is also available in 1 oz copper rounds from Golden State Mint in addition to these 2 oz rounds.
When fear grips the world, logic is often the only thing separating mankind from complete annihilation. The Standing Freedom design depicts Lady Virtue as a symbol of the power of logic to free the world from its fears and overcome the rash decisions brought on by scarcity. Golden State Mint uses its MiniMintage approach to deliver valuable, collectible silver pieces. Designs such as the Standing Freedom artwork have MiniMintage figures and are available only until the original production run is sold out.
On the obverse side of all 2 oz Silver Standing Freedom Silver Shield Rounds, you’ll find the design of Standing Freedom. This female figure is known as Lady Virtue and she wields a deadly spear in her right hand while defending the world with a shield emblazoned with the symbol of the Trivium of Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric. Her figure wears a revealing robe that showcases the power and strength of her figure while her hair flows over her left shoulder in the breeze. “Freedom” is engraved across the top half of the field.
The reverse side of the Silver Standing Freedom Silver Shield Round includes the image of the Silver Shield Collection logo. This includes a sword standing on the tip of its blade wrapped in flames. There is an ornate background design behind it with engravings of “Silver Shield” above and “1 Troy Ounce 2018 .999 Fine Silver.”
The Golden State Mint opened in 1974 with Jim Pavlakos leading the charge to design brilliant silver, gold, and copper products worthy of investment or collection. His son Andrew now works with him to help lead the mint into the next generation.
