The U.S. Mint and Treasury has come out with a new Lady Liberty and this commemorative coin is not just fabulous, it's also making history! This is the first African American woman to be featured on an officially minted U.S. coin, with a beautiful crown of stars and toga. She's sure to stir patriotism even in the most cynical of hearts and times.
The 24k gold coin was revealed at a recent ceremony honoring the 225th anniversary of The United States Mint. Also, let's marvel again at the coins beauty:
The Mint doesn't plan to stop here either, they have plans to create other diverse versions of the Lady Liberty as well in the next few years!
"The 2017 American Liberty 225th Anniversary Gold Coin is the first in a series of 24-karat gold coins that will feature designs which depict an allegorical Liberty in a variety of contemporary forms-including designs representing Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Indian-Americans among others-to reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States," reads a press release from the Mint.
The coins worth $100, and the other side features an iconic figure in classic Americana, the bald eagle:
I don't know about you, but I'm sure looking forward to seeing what else the U.S Mint has got up its sleeve in the coming years. Well done and here's to more conscious representation of American diversity.
