Title: 2018-W American Eagle $25 PalladiumDate/Period: 2018Materials: PalladiumDimension: 34.036 mmDescription: The 2018 Palladium Eagle, like its 2017 predecessor, carries obverse and reverse designs created by the famed artist and sculptor, Adolph A. Weinman. The coin’s head boasts a portrait of Lady Liberty initially struck on the U.S. Mercury dime from 1916 to 1945. In this image, a young Liberty dons a Phrygian or “liberty” cap with wings on either side. This winged style led to the dime often being compared with denarii of the Roman Republic, coins which sometimes bore images of the Roman god, Mercury. Mercury also famously wore a winged cap, and thus the association between Weinman’s Liberty and the Roman Mercury was made. According to Weinman, however, the symbolism was much more straightforward. He noted that his winged cap simply epitomized the idea of “liberty of thought.”Additional Information:Proof
