This is a follow up to the successful and award winning 2017 issue. A newly designed coin for 2019 that features “Liberty with 13 rays of light emanating along her headdress, symbolizing the free and creative spirit of America’s people” as noted by the US Mint’s website. The [SG1] United Sates Liberty Program celebrates, “Modern renditions of this iconic Liberty that embodies the ideals of freedom and equality first set forth in our Declaration of Independence.”

Conceptualized by a team of four people from the US Mint, the obverse was designed by Artistic Infusion Program Artist Richard Masters and sculpted/engraved by Medallic Artist Joseph F. Menna. Reverse was designed by Artistic Infusion Program Artist Donna Weaver and sculpted/engraved by Medallic Artist Michael Guadioso.

Released on August 15th, 2019, this coin was struck in 24K gold or .9999 fine gold with a face value of $100. The surfaces are an enhanced uncirculated finish with a reeded edge. High relief is created by making the diameter of the coin smaller, and thicker, which allows the design elements to be raised more than a coin struck under normal circumstances. This type of striking process produces superlative detail and a total of 50,000 coins were authorized to be issued by The West Point Mint.
