The United States Mint published product descriptions, limits and images of the upcoming 2017-P Proof American Liberty Silver Medal.
The silver medal is one of five expected from the U.S. Mint this year in celebration of its 225th anniversary, and a counterpart to the $100 gold edition release in April. (See photos of the anniversary gold coin.)
Struck to a proof finish at the Philadelphia Mint in an ounce of 99.9% pure silver, it’s due out on June 14 at noon ET. It has no mintage limit, product limit and household order limit.
An unknown now is its price. In 2016, the Mint released two silver medals bearing the same design as the 2015 American Liberty gold coin. Each of them was $34.95.
Four other silver medals with varying finishes and mint marks will be released later this year. These are expected to be exclusively sold within a single set, and include:
- another one from the Philadelphia Mint but in a reverse proof,
- one from the San Francisco Mint in regular proof,
- one from the Denver Mint in uncirculated, and
- one from the West Point Mint in enhanced uncirculated.
All five medals are produced from the same silver blanks that are used in making American Silver Eagles. They lack coin-mandated inscriptions, providing for a taller obverse profile of Lady Liberty than seen on the gold coin. They also do not have the 225th anniversary inscriptions which appear on the gold coin’s edge.
The 2017 gold coin and medal designs are the first in a biennial series that will feature Liberty in a variety of contemporary forms.
For more information about the single silver medal scheduled for release on June 14, visit this U.S. Mint product page. It will ship within a black matte finish presentation case and include an informational booklet.
