225th Anniversary 2017 American Liberty Gold Coin, Obverse and Reverse

First-day sales of the high-relief 2017-W $100 Proof American Liberty Gold Coin reached 14,285 pieces, according to U.S. Mint spokesman Michael White.

That’s about 14.3% of the possible 100,000. At $1,640 apiece, the collectible realized more than $23.4 million in its start.

Released Thursday as part of a yearlong celebration for the U.S. Mint’s 225th anniversary, the proof marks the second issue in a program of $100 high-reliefs that are struck in an ounce of .9999 fine gold.

The 2015-W $100 American Liberty Gold Coin kicked off the series. It scored first-day sales of 36,686 coins, representing 73.3% of the 50,000 possible. That release enjoyed a few added advantages in addition to its smaller mintage, including a lower debuting price of $1,490 and the distinction of being a first.

This year’s coin is the first issue in a biennial series that depicts Liberty in a variety of contemporary forms to include designs representing Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Indian-Americans among others.

Order the new gold coin online, right here, or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468). Its price can change weekly depending on the trending value of gold.

Sometime later in the year, .999 fine silver medal versions of the coin with varying finishes will be available.

I bought one, and if it wasn’t so expensive, I would have two. I am not surprised by most of the comments on this blog. I am shocked at the level of ignorance yet for the true good people, “may the creator continue to bless you!”

This is a beautiful, beautiful coin. I’m a artist and I recognize (my opinion) is a profile of the actress Kerry Washington. Great work! For those who keep bringing up the “Native American” should be first, should do their homework. Africans are indigenous to the Americas(north and south) as well as the entire World! All SCHOLARS know this whether they admit or not. The 2015 version is an African American also lol. I’m sure if you ask the artist, he’ll agree.

Just received my American liberty 225th anniversary gold coin and noticed a discoloration on the reverse side… a wing has a copper-colored spot… less than a size of a pencil eraser… Has anyone else seen this? It’s not part of the plastic cover and it’s not a reflection of something. thanks for any advice.
