In 2024, the United States Mint and The Royal Mint have combined on a project unlike any ever undertaken in the past. In previous years, the two sovereign mints have paired up to offer dual-coin releases featuring Liberty and Britannia, as well as in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower. Now, the two mints have partnered on a singular design for the first time ever. Today, 2024-W 1 oz Proof Liberty & Britannia Gold Coins are available online at JM Bullion.

The historical ties between the United States and the United Kingdom are complex. From the Colonial Era to the dawn of the 20th century, the two sides both engaged in conflict against one another and, later, on the same side in one of history’s greatest eras of conflict. The ties that bind these two nations are unbreakable.
With the historic release of the 2024-W 1 oz Proof Liberty & Britannia Gold Coins, the United States and United Kingdom showcase the depth of their ties. These gold coins are packaged in US Mint presentation boxes and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. These coins mark the first time Liberty and Britannia have appeared on the same coin, with US Mint Chief Engraver Joseph Menna creating the Liberty visual and Royal Mint Chief Engraver Gordon Summers creating the Britannia image.
The obverse of the 2024-W Proof Liberty & Britannia Gold Coin features a depiction of the two allegorical figures of America and Britain. Both figures appear in right-profile relief, when viewed in the upright position of either, with Liberty boasting stars in her hair and a torch in one hand. Britannia wears her iconic Corinthian helmet with a trident in her hand.
On the reverse of 2024-W 1 oz Proof Liberty & Britannia Gold Coins, you will find a design from Joseph Menna that is unique to the US Mint coins issued in this series. Here, the sun rises over the Atlantic Ocean with a Bristlecone Pine on the left coast representing America and an English Yew representing Britain on the right coast.
