Anniversary celebrations continue at the United States Mint with its newest release, the 2017 American Liberty Silver Four-Medal Set. The collectible is the Mint’s final product marking its 225th anniversary.
Available beginning today, Oct. 19, at noon ET, the set features four medals each with a unique finish and mint mark.
The four medals of the American Liberty 225th Anniversary Set include:
- 2017-P reverse proof silver medal from the Philadelphia Mint
- 2017-S standard proof silver medal from the San Francisco Mint
- 2017-D uncirculated silver medal from the Denver Mint
- 2017-W enhanced uncirculated silver medal from the West Point Mint
They are struck from the same planchets as American Silver Eagles and share their specifications, including a composition of 99.9% silver, a diameter of 1.598 inches (40.60 mm) and a weight of 1.000 troy oz (31.103 g). Unlike the coins, however, the medals have a plain edge.
Their designs match the earlier issued 2017-W Proof American Liberty Gold Coin and the 2017-P Proof American Liberty Silver Medal. The gold piece has current sales of 25,037 while the silver medal has sales of 46,962.
Designed by Justin Kunz, obverses depict Liberty rendered as an African-American woman wearing a crown of five-pointed stars along with the inscriptions LIBERTY, 1792, and 2017.
Their reverse, designed by Chris Costello, showcases a powerful eagle in flight along with inscriptions of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and a mintmark of ‘P’ for Philadelphia, ‘S’ for San Francisco, ‘D’ for Denver or ‘W’ for West Point.
