Lady Liberty and the bald eagle have long served as icons of American culture and society and have been featured on coins for more than 100 years. The bald eagle has been the nation’s official emblem since 1792, while the Statue of Liberty has stood in New York’s harbor since the 1880s. The brand new 2015-W 1 oz Gold High Relief Liberty Coin from the US Mint, available now on Silver.com, reimagines the image of both icons.

These 2015-W 1 oz Gold High Relief Liberty Coins are the first $100 gold coins struck by the United States Mint, and instantly take a place as one of the purest gold coins in the world. The designs on both the obverse and reverse are brand new, and offer modern visions of Liberty and the bald eagle.
On the obverse of the coin is a new image of Lady Liberty. Featured in full-length figure, she stands tall with a torch in her right hand, American flag in her left, and a brilliant crown of leaves around her head. The reverse features the image of a bald eagle in full flight. As it soars through the air, it clutches an olive branch of peace in its talons.
Both designs were created by members of the United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program. Justin Kunz created the new image of Liberty, while Paul Balan designed the new eagle version, which was engraved by Don Everhart.
Each coin in this product listing features a perfect MS70 grade from the NGC. Coins with this grade have full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. The American Flag label is featured within the packaging of the coin, verifying its year of minting, weight, purity, metal content, and face value.
