Each of the 2017-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Liberty Coins in this product listing is a perfect specimen in the eyes of the NGC. Coins with a PF70 exhibit full, original mint luster and lack any form of detracting flaw on the surfaces of the coin.
These new 225th Anniversary celebratory coins feature just the second-ever use of edge lettering on a United States Mint coin. The technology and design concept was introduced for the first time by the US Mint with the release of the 2016 American Silver Eagle, marking that coins 30th anniversary release.
This depiction of Liberty as an African-American woman is the first, with those to follow later depicting contemporary forms of Liberty as an Asian-American, Hispanic-American, and Indian-American. The coins are due out from the United States Mint on April 6, 2017, but there is no known information yet regarding the mintage levels.
On the obverse is the left-profile portrait of Liberty with African-American features. Instead of the traditional use of a wreath of laurels for her crown, this Liberty wears the crown of stars found on the Statue of Freedom atop the dome of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington DC. This design was created by Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Justin Kunz and sculpted by Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill.
The reverse of the coin is the powerful image of an American bald eagle flight. Youll note every facet of the birds feathers visible and it sharp eyes keenly watching the horizon as it flies through the coins design field. The reverse field has its own set of creators, with Mint Artistic Infusion Program designer Chris T. Costello creating the image and Mint Sculptor-Engraver Michael Gaudioso bringing it to life.
