SOLD OUT AT THE MINT IN 3 MINUTES!!! The 2016 American Liberty Silver Medal, minted at the West Point Mint, is the latest in that new era, rendering contemporary designs using the latest in modern digital and manufacturing technology. The U.S. Mint fulfilled renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens' original vision with the release of the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin, closing one era of classic American coin design and ushering in a new one. United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Justin Kunz has created a modern depiction of Liberty for the obverse (heads), evoking the ideals of liberty, courage, and hope. Artistic Infusion Program Designer Paul C. Balan's reverse (tails) design depicts an American eagle rising in flight, gripping a branch in its talons as an embodiment of freedom. The 2016 American Liberty Silver Medal represents our proud numismatic heritage and glimmering future at their very best. Each 99.9 percent fine silver medal is encapsulated, presented in a blue velvet presentation case, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
