Joseph Menna, Chief Engraver at the United States Mint, and Gordon Summers, Chief Engraver at The Royal Mint, joined forces to craft the obverse (heads side) design shared on both the gold coin and silver medal. It features depictions of Liberty, symbolized on American coinage since the early years of the Nation, and Britannia, an esteemed icon on British coins since the late 1600s.

Liberty and Britannia Coin and Medal Designs

Specifically, the obverse sides of the pair of collectibles show Allegorical Liberty and Britannia in stoic profile portraits, featuring complementary and balancing elements reminiscent of faces on a playing card. Their appearance distinguishes each figure: Liberty carries a torch and is adorned with stars, while Britannia wields a trident and wears a Corinthian helmet. Inscriptions read "LIBERTY" and "2024." Menna’s and Summer’s initials can also be found on the design.

Each reverse (tails side), exclusively designed by Joseph Menna, portrays the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean, framed by two shores. To the west stands a Great Basin Bristlecone Pine tree, while to the east stands an English Yew tree. These elements symbolize the nations as well as the prospects for their enduring mutual friendship.

I’m curious as to what price Magic Mike will be selling this one for…$4000 or $4500? But he’ll at least have it graded 70 and in a ‘rare’ sub-label, and of course…the ubiquitous ‘Red Oak’ presentation box!

Dazed and Coinfused

I picked up a silver one. Couldn’t convince myself to buy either of thr gold ones. But at almost half the price of US silver ounces and had Chucky on it so kinda a no risk for me. Hope the king does well and pulls off a few more years of life, but if not, good chance to add a profit to my margins. Won’t be getting the American version. Also, passing on the kamala covid coin going up for sale in a few hours

Dazed and Coinfused

To be clear, bought the UK silver coin, not US silver medal.

Craig

I figured that one out after you said ‘almost half the price of US silver ounces’. I see that Trudeau’s Canadian mint has also gone WOKE and is now offering a silver ounce coin commemorating a black colony in Amber Valley Canada for ‘black history’ month, and it’s just $105.00. I’m just guessing they are seeing how fast our DEI coins are vanishing from mints vaults, here in Afriamerica, that they are experiencing FOMO. A wise move indeed!

Chris Terp

Good going D&C. I’m guessing that was a bullion coin you purchased from the UK since you’ve stated cheaper than the US medal?

Dazed and Coinfused

Yeah. Figured same as the silver medal, which is technically bullion, but since us mint only allows the hucksters that control the grading and bulk buys to sell bullion, naming it a medal skirts the laws of contract. Probably would have passed if it had the rising sun on it, not my cup of tea. Although higher mintage than the US, it has Chuck on it and also takes money out of America and helps UK. Maybe they’ll get the hint. Doubt it.

30 days of pre-order? Royal mint ships the 15th. So wonder why two distinct styles of release. Speaking of pre-order, isn’t the window for Harriet Thugman coin closing today? Doesn’t matter, it was sold out just minutes after going on sale I think. Hard to narrow it down as the mint stopped updating sales numbers. I wonder if it is too late to order a congratulations coin to send to Biden for announcing he already finished counting votes and has won the election. 10 million illegals with new IDs such as Bonnie Cooper, or Maxwell Chamberpot, or Doug Rasmussen are… Read more »

10 million illegals? it may be as many as 20 million as who’s actually counting. One things for certain, at least to me, its going to be a close call in November because of those numbers (and of course the general IQ of the average person living in this country.) I generally don’t get too involved with politics, as I’m more of a COIN guy, but I do hear things from time to time. BTW, if uncle joe gets re-elected, that’ll guarantee your camella will be the next president. It might be worthwhile to buy one of those Liberty/Britannia coins… Read more »

11 o clock and all is well. Hurry hurry hurry. Get in line for the waiting room now, beat the rush. Don’t let magic mike corner the market and strong arm his army of buyers in front of you.

Dazed and Coinfused

$3700 you get a slabbed and labeled gold fdoi high relief. 5 sold, 2 available. Wonder how that happened so fast. Shouldn’t it be an advance release? Rest of listing are for silver. Expect double cost from the mint to get it. Somehow there are a few that have ogp, I thought the graders destroyed all the boxes and inserts of the coins they graded. Didn’t see any anacs listed so guess Mike is busy putting together custom sets or seeing how fast they sell on eBay to adjust his costs. Then again, probably just pilfer 300% markup on hsn… Read more »

Is that for the Liberty & Britannia coin? I went on HSN’s website and couldn’t find it. I did see that they’re selling 1/1000 ounce coins for just $29.95! I’m no math wizard, but that sure does sound like a steal to me! Come on home to papa, gold coins.

Dazed and Coinfused

Fee bay. Mike usually gets the 11 pm or midnight or 1 am show. Not seeing coin hour on hsn, bunch of handbags. My guess is he figured out the dei coins aren’t doing well. Oh wait. 8 pm coin hour and 9pm coin hour on hsn 2. Nothing on Bloomberg or fox business. So anything is possible. I might record to see if he tries to sucker folks into pouncing on tubman. As long as he doesn’t show the side with her image on it, I think he’ll be OK. Good possibility as hsn2 720p and grainy unfocused display,… Read more »

hmmm maybe they should have waited til july 4 2026 to issue these, you know to celebrate 250 years of rebellion and independence from britain with… friendship?

funny how things change. but one thing that hasn’t changed, the mint overcharging by $1000 for an ounce of gold.

No way. I’d bet they find some way to insert African American and list their history as spies during the revolutionary War. And here they taught you that they couldn’t read or write (they didn’t just eavesdrop, they wrote reports, they read maps, they peeked over shoulders and read letters delivered by special courier. Say whaaaaat. But, can’t think of anything other than DoI to commemorate the date. We didn’t have a country yet. Still colonies. No president. Well official president. Washington not elected til almost 12 years later. And not much going on in England to mark the date.… Read more »

On the road but got the gold over the phone. About two minutes in the waiting room but ultimately it was a pretty smooth transaction.

Morgan

the u s mint may charge too much for its products, but all the equivalent products from the royal mint are more costly than those from the u s mint. their one ounce silver commemorative is $130.00, although it is a coin, not a medal. they also offer a two ounce, a five ounce and a 1 kg coin. some gold versions, also. their one ounce gold coin is $3,495 (sold out), compared to ours at $3,020, although it might be less without the value added tax. their 1/40 ounce gold coin is only $99.50 and still available. so, yes,… Read more »

Not sure which coins you referring to. The link from RM I got this morning was for 3 options a quarter ounce gold piece for $555. A full ounce gold for about $2100. And a single one ounce silver bullion of which 260,000 were made for $26 and after shipping and tax $43 delivered. Not exactly a coin like ASE, but is part of a special issue between 2 countries. While I was window shopping I saw several offerings like star wars and Robin hood and the queen’s beasts and of course their virtue signaling offerings. I did not see… Read more »

Ok I think I see the $3500 you talking about. It wasn’t shown last night, they only had 3 offering for lib brit when I was surfing. However, it is limited to 800. 1 40th is limited to 1776. Buy they have a large variety of both bullion and proof. Not just the take it or leave it 2 options of the US. Just varies. But yeah, it can be the same or more expensive compared to US mint I suppose. Guess just depends which itch you are wanting to scratch. Some coins I’d keep others I’d sell, hopefully for… Read more »

The silver bullion Royal Mint collaboration Morgan is much cheaper than anything the US Mint has.

The Royal Mint also produces less product than the US Mint. Royal Mint 1oz silver coin only 12,300 while US Mint will produce 75,000.

Craig

Dazed, you are correct about the Great Basin Bristlecone Pine on the obverse of the Liberty/Britannia coin. Could you please explain the rational behind placing a ‘west coast’ tree on a coin supposedly showing our ‘east’ coastline facing Englands west coast, separated by the Atlantic? Why would they use a GBB, which is an amazing tree but also one that only a tiny, tiny fraction of our population has ever heard of. I’ll bet a million dollars if I showed a bristlecone pine needle to anyone they’d tell me it was covered by insects. It actually excretes resin spots over… Read more »

Bonus, the royal mint offerings don’t have the inaccurate GBP in wrong coast, it has a recently oldest ascending king to take the crown with an illness that caused our defense secretary to disappear for a month. May be a very short reign. Kate is gonna be out of commission for a while and William is taking time off for daddy duties, Andrew has been exiled, much like the royals banished for being not see supporters to the Caribbean, and good old red headed step child Harry has snuck into jolly old England To try to forge his and Me… Read more »

Dazed, To be accurate, I said I grew a few of the Rockmountain Bristlecone Pines (Pinus aristata) in Pennsylvania. The GBB (Pinus longaeava) will only grow in the west coast. And the bristlecones I grew were dwarf ‘cultivars’ which would only grow to 8′-10′ feet or so in height. Mine were only a couple feet tall and they didn’t look anything like those ancient GBB’s on the west coast. It is strange these guys would use that particular tree to flourish on our east coast where it could not actually flourish in real life! Man, if I were a gamblin… Read more »

Justice also carries a scale to weigh who is giving her the most money. Also, what good is a scale if she can’t read the results. The 14th amendment was to keep reps (senate and house) from using the electoral votes to usurp the nation’s will. Say grant won 40 states. But insurrectionist (only an officer of confederacy would be guilty of that, as most soldiers were pardoned, therefore never committed insurrection, plus since no longer a US state, the war would be similar to England vs France or what have you, it wasn’t as much a civil war as… Read more »

Dazed, I know you’ve probably already ordered your gold Camela & Britannia Coin and I’m wondering why a lot of these items are being sold as ‘pre-orders.’ Is this $3020 a pre-order promotional price point which will go up after a 30 day period? I see the HOL has been raised to 5 for it now. I thought someone said it would sell out within hours? Maybe the economy isn’t humming quite the way we’re being told.

Dazed and Coinfused

Wasn’t long ago all the media were posting that the mints have a shortage of blanks and that the gold and silver offerings were all sold out. Which is why the mint skipped the 2022 release of Morgan and peace, and why magic mike used his fortune to have fiji mint produce the coin for us. So thoughtful that guy. Now I check and the UK mint has many coins available I would’ve sworn star wars would have been gone really fast. Same for US mint. More coins being returned, 25k ase from 2024. Egads. I didn’t get a gold… Read more »

You’re right about the trump coin and his likely reaction if it were in silver or bronze. It is a shame he doesn’t know to keep certain things quiet and confidential. If I were to advise him, I’d recommend that he talk less. Every time he talks he just gives more ammo to the left nuts. I’m hearing rumours the hilldog is gearing up for another prez run. Oh joy! I recently bought a roll of ase’s from silver.com for $554. I like to buy a roll or two each year and this was the first time in years where… Read more »
