Freedom Girl is the Golden State Mint’s vision of Lady Liberty as originally depicted on the Peace Silver Dollar. First issued in 1921, the Peace Dollar was the last silver dollar coin in circulation from the United States Mint. It was available from 1921 to 1928, and again in 1934 and 1935.
Anthony de Francisci created the image of Lady Liberty on the face of the Peace Dollar. His wife Teresa served as his inspiration for the image of the Goddess of Liberty. His goal was to create a coin that resonated through its design the desire of a war-weary nation to put the horrors of World War I to bed in hopes of a brighter, more peaceful future.
On the obverse of the 2018 1 oz Silver Freedom Girl Shield Round is a new vision for Liberty. This design captures a left-profile portrait of Liberty known as the Freedom Girl. Her long, curly locks of hair flow down over her shoulder and blow across her face in the breeze.
The reverse side of the 1 oz Silver Freedom Girl Shield Round includes the common design element of all rounds in the Silver Shield Collection. This image depicts a singular sword in the center of an ornate design field. There is a ring of flames around the outer edge and engravings of “Silver Shield” and “1 Troy Ounce 2018 .999 Pure AG.”
