WE CELEBRATE DIVERSITY WITH THE LADY LIBERTY GOLD COINMarch 10, 2018
Black Lady Liberty is getting her well-deserved coins!
The U.S. Mint and Treasury is releasing a commemorative coin of Lady Liberty and to celebrate their 225th anniversary, the 24k gold coin has a black woman gracing it. Each coin is worth $100. The Black woman is portrayed with a crown of stars, a toga-like dress with her braided hair pulled back. The back of the coin features an eagle.
Thankfully, this is not the end of the U.S. Mint and Treasury’s steps to diversity.
“The 2017 American Liberty 225th Anniversary Gold Coin is the first in a series of 24-karat gold coins that will feature designs which depict an allegorical Liberty in a variety of contemporary forms-including designs representing Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Indian-Americans among others-to reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States.”
