Collectors can expect a release date of July 30 for the highly anticipated 2015-W $100 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin, based on newly published pages on the United States Mint’s website.
Other official information such as the coin’s description and limits are also now public. A 50,000 mintage limit has been established. That detail is new since we wrote about the $100 coin last week. There are no household ordering limits in place.
Struck in one-ounce of .9999 fine gold at the U.S. Mint in West Point, the collector coin depicts Lady Liberty on the obverse and an American eagle on the reverse. These same designs, excluding many of the inscriptions, will appear later this year on a companion one-ounce .999 fine American Liberty High Relief Silver Medal.
To account for its higher relief, the $100 gold piece has a slightly smaller diameter at 1.205 inches than the standard 1.287 inches of the American Gold Buffalo and American Gold Eagle.
Its price will get set on July 29, and it can change weekly. The U.S. Mint’s 2015-W $50 Proof American Gold Buffalo Coin is also struck in one-ounce of .9999 fine gold. It’s now $1,540, which is based on a gold average that is within the range of $1,150 to $1,199.99 an ounce.
