The cultural, historic, and geopolitical ties between the United States and the United Kingdom have best been defined in the 21st century as a special bond. That special bond is evident in the precious metals marketplace, as the US Mint and The Royal Mint have partnered on bullion coin releases in the past. However, the 2024 Liberty & Britannia Series offers a new level of partnership between two of the world’s largest sovereign mints. Now, 2024-P 1 oz Proof Liberty & Britannia Silver Medals are available for purchase online from JM Bullion.

Liberty and Britannia have been stalwarts of coinage for the respective nations for thousands of years. Britannia, alone, has appeared on coinage issued in the British Isles since the Romans first issued a coin with her effigy in 79 AD. Britannia has regularly graced coinage of the United Kingdom since the late 17th century.
In the United States, Liberty has been a part of American currency since the very founding of the United States Mint. When the first truly American coins were issued in 1795, Liberty’s bust was present on several denominations. Today, Liberty and Britannia still symbolize their respective nations, and in this unique release, they come together to symbolize the enduring connection between the two countries.
For the obverse design of the 2024 1 oz Proof Liberty & Britannia Silver Medal, the Chief Engravers of the United States Mint and The Royal Mint created designs of their respective allegories for the medal. Liberty is shown with wild, curly hair, stars, and a torch in a design from Joseph Menna. Gordon Summers created the effigy of Britannia with her mighty trident and Corinthian helmet.
In the reverse field of 2024 Proof Liberty & Britannia Medals, Menna created a design reflecting the Transatlantic partnership of the two nations. The sun rises in the central background field over the Atlantic Ocean, with a Bristlecone pine on the west coast in America and an English Yew on the east coast in the United Kingdom.
These 2024-P 1 oz Proof Liberty & Britannia Silver Medals are available in presentation boxes from the United States Mint that include a Certificate of Authenticity. The medals are part of a gold coin-silver medal issue from the United States Mint and The Royal Mint. While the Liberty-Britannia design, the first-ever single-design collaboration between the two facilities, features on both US and British issues, the opposing design is unique. King Charles III will feature on British issues in the series.
