The American Gold Liberty coin program is meant to celebrate 225 years of American coinage with all-new depictions of Liberty that break with tradition. America is, after all, a nation of immigrants with people from all backgrounds. The US Mint has chosen to celebrate the nation’s diversity with depictions of Liberty as a woman from various ethnic backgrounds in the Gold Liberty collection.
All 2018-W 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Liberty Coins listed here today received a perfect certification from the NGC. Coins are graded on a scale of 1 to 70, with the PF70 grade marking the highest possible certification for proof coins. PF70 coins showcase full, original mint luster and are free of detracting flaws on the surfaces areas or design elements.
The inclusion of an Early Release label in this coin’s plastic slab indicates its prompt arrival for certification with the NGC. To earn the ER label, coins must arrive at the NGC or an approved third-party depository within the first 30 days of the US Mint’s initial release date for the coins in 2018.
On the reverse of the 2018-W 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Liberty Coin is the design of a bald eagle. Common on American coinage, this particular bald eagle is in flight across the coin’s surface from left to right with its eyes fixed on a distant goal which it purses with vigor and determination as it flies across the design set.
The obverse of all 2018 Proof American Gold Liberty Coins include a depiction of Liberty. The word “Liberty” is stretched out across the top half of the gold coin’s design field edge, and she wears a crown of stars upon her head. However, this vision of Liberty captures her female form as that of an African-American woman.
