2022 American Liberty Silver Medal Launches Aug. 18 for $75

38

The United States Mint selected Aug. 18 as the release date for their 2022 American Liberty Silver Medal. Limited to 75,000 pieces and priced at $75, the 1-ounce .999 fine silver medal will carry a proof finish. Proofs feature frosted foregrounds and mirror-like backgrounds. They are the U.S Mint’s highest quality finish.

The collectible currently has a published household order limit of "None."

The U.S. Mint’s American Liberty Gold Coin and Silver Medal Program features products bearing modern renditions of the iconic figure of Liberty.

Excluding coin inscriptions, designs on the silver medal match those of the 2021-W $100 Proof American Liberty Gold Coin, which launched Aug. 19, 2021, for $2,715. It was limited to 12,500 pieces and lasted for about 24 hours before selling out. Ungraded examples of the .9999 fine gold coin are now selling in the secondary market for prices of around $3,100 to $3,700.

Created by Beth Zaiken and sculpted by Craig Campbell, the obverse or heads side design shows a wild American Mustang horse, bucking off a western-style saddle, evoking the throwing off of the yoke of British rule during the American Revolution. The horse is centered on a rising sun.

Created by Richard Masters and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, the reverse or tails side design depicts a close-up view of an eagle with an open beak.

The silver medal will not have a high relief like its gold counterpart. Other differences include a plain edge versus the gold’s coin reeded edge and production locations and mint marks — striking at the Philadelphia Mint and "P" mint mark for the silver medal versus the gold coin’s minting at West Point and its "W" mint mark.

Silver will be worth about $12 an ounce when this ounce goes on sale for $75.00 JUST SAY NO!

Hey SENZA and Kaiser, I’m with you on this one. I’m done with medals, too.

SENZA

The mark-up is insane and where the hell is Liberty-

She got bucked.

SENZA

What say you about them giving extra attention to this medal and once again, pricing a silver product far further out than the usual 4 days –

Antonio

The Mint make a mistake? I think not! LOL. :-))

SENZA

Right On Antonio,

Antonio

I was thinking more in line of the destruction of the Death Star.

What Antonio said………………………….

Sir Kaiser, that would not work since the American Liberty 2022 Silver Medal is made with 1.000 troy ounce silver planchets and the Morgan/Peace Silver Dollars use 0.858 troy ounce planchets (and the Commemorative Silver Dollars silver weight = 0.859 troy ounce).

SENZA

Oh My

SENZA, it is a puzzle, contained in a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma, bound in a conundrum; but perhaps there is a explanation.

SENZA

Glad were on the same page

Yes, but I have to look!

The Mint has gone crazy with medals with 70 different bronze medals on sale right now (140 considering two different sizes). They have no dates, and no product or mintage limits either- so they can all be around for a long time or brought back time and again. It really dilutes the field IMO. Makes me wonder about the lasting value of a commemorative proof dollar and medal set– like with the 2022 NLB Jackie Robinson or the 2018 WW I medal sets. Granted, these are silver medals– but what is the value of something that can be made again… Read more »

Glad you mentioned that Major D (Mintages) they can make unlimited quantities which defeats the purpose of collecting

I’m hesitant to grab even one of the upcoming ASE (S) because who knows how many gazillions they will produce wiping out any value

SENZA

I still have my enrollment active but absolutely positively still undecided

I think everyone is feeling it

at least the Liberty medal has a date, which means the quantity will be limited, but for most non-date medals the Mint provides no sales numbers or mintages because the production is unlimited into the future.

No, you’re not being a stickler. I agree and wish the Mint would apply apt dollar amounts that correlate with the metal troy ounces. Canada does this to some degree, as they have $5, $10 and $20 face values for different 1-oz silver coins, $30 for 2-oz, $50 for 5-oz and $100 for 10-oz. Although, I did just buy a 1-cent face value on a 1-oz silver coin, but this was a special tribute coin for the 1-cent. I think the US Mint kept the 25-cent face value on the 5-oz silver to honor the quarter design.

Ha ha ha – EXZZZZZACTLY SENZA! Strong dollar and commodities sinking in market will make picking up bullion coins finally worth it again.

The mint certainly succeeded in leaving the classic female images representing liberty and trying something new, but the American Mustang evokes more a feeling of rebellion than liberty. While they’re coupled in our history, they are different. I’m thankful for this country and that I don’t use rubles.

Kia99, I agree with you and think it would have been better if the mustang didn’t have a saddle- and was of the untouched wild variety. That way it would’ve evoked freedom- the kind we were all fortunate enough to be born into.

Major D

Hi Kaiser, thanks for the info on your bio as I didn’t know. The US has benefitted from having many come here from Eastern Europe. As for Mikhail’s quote I couldn’t disagree more. The EU never rolled tanks into Hungary or Czechoslovakia to stop freedom movements like the old Soviet Union did, nor prop up puppet governments in Poland, East Germany et al.

Major D

Yes, what you say is true. I believe they’re in this country, too.

Kia99

I rather like the medallic design Kaiser; just not as a representation of liberty. I find it thought provoking since, as you point out, a lot of rebellion hasn’t resulted in liberty, democracy or human rights.

Major D

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

That’s gonna leave a mark.

Antonio

Having served in the military, I get where you’re coming from.

I’m thankful for that too.

I may feel like getting kicked by a horse but will get one to go with the gold. Sure didn’t expect $75.

Daniel

For the increase in value you have seen with your gold coin, you can pick this up as a freebie to complete the set.

Rooster

Daniel: Good point. I liked the 2016 Liberty silver medals at half the cost. Much lower mintage also.

Kia99

Yes, lower mintage, lower price, much disparaged design— and they sold out in 5 minutes.

Rooster

Kia99: Forgot that it had sold out that quick. One of favorite medals. The limit was 2 from each mint.

Antonio

Too bad the limit is only for us and doesn’t apply to the dealers.

If interested, when purchasing the 2017 gold American Liberty 1 ounce the us mint in addition is giving you the 1/10 ounce gold American Liberty. Don’t recall them ever doing this. The price has climbed considerably since issue. Scan the Q code in the recent collector’s guide. Just got this in today’s mail.
