August 19: New American Liberty coin design

The product will be limited to 12,500 coins and a household order limit of one coin.

The U.S. Mint will announce pricing for the 1 ounce.9999 fine-gold coin on its website near the issue date.

The coin's reverse, which is an allegorical reflection on Liberty, features a wild American mustang horse bucking off a saddle in western style, evoking the breaking of the British yoke during the American Revolution.

The horse is centered on the rising sun.

The U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Beth Zaiken designed the obverse. She is a Minnesota-based professional artist/illustrator and was digitally sculpted and engraved by Craig A. Campbell, U.S. Mint Medallic Artist.

The reverse of the coin shows a close-up view of the head and eyes facing right. Richard Masters, an AIP artist, designed the reverse and Phebe Hemphill, a U.S. Mint Medallic Artist, sculpted it.

The American Liberty gold coins are struck in high relief and are often used on a.999 fine-silver medal.

The U.S. Mint is yet to confirm if there will be a silver-colored medal featuring these designs and, if so when. It has not been added to the Mint's 2021 product list.

The American Liberty issue of 2015 depicted Liberty as a standing woman with a torch and American flag. On the 2017 and 2018 issues, Liberty was portrayed as a portrait of a Black woman. On the 2019 coin and medal, Liberty is portrayed radiantly.
