The United States Mint recently published images and a release date for its 2017 American Liberty Silver Medal Set. Those attending the ANA’s World’s Fair of Money in Denver Aug. 1 to 5 had the opportunity to see the set up close.
Everyone else will have to wait a few months with its release scheduled for Oct. 19 at noon ET.
Issued as a part of the U.S. Mint’s yearlong 225th anniversary celebration, the four-medal set includes:
- one silver medal from the Philadelphia Mint in a reverse proof,
- one silver medal from the San Francisco Mint in standard proof,
- one silver medal from the Denver Mint in uncirculated, and
- one silver medal from the West Point Mint in enhanced uncirculated.
All four medals share the same designs. Obverses depict Liberty rendered as an African-American woman wearing a crown of five-pointed stars. Reverses feature an eagle in flight.
These same designs are also as showcased on the earlier released 2017-W $100 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin and the 2017-P Proof American Liberty Silver Medal.
Both of these are available at catalog.usmint.gov with the 1-ounce gold coin listed for $1,690 with sales of 24,031 and the 1-ounce silver medal priced at $59.95 with sales of 41,304 (sales totals for the pair are as of Aug. 6).
Pricing of the medal set remains unknown as of this writing. More images of it are available on the set’s product page right here.
