The 225th Anniversary American Silver Liberty Medal Set


At noon eastern standard time on October 19, the U.S mint released the 225th Anniversary American Silver Liberty Medal 4-coin set. This release celebrates the 225th Anniversary of the U.S Mint which was established by the Coinage Act of 1792. It is the last release to commemorate this milestone for the year. The obverse and reverse of the medal exhibit honorable renditions of Lady Liberty and the American Bald Eagle.

Each medal is struck from the same planchets as the American Silver Eagle, weighing 1 ounce (.999 fine silver). The set consists of 4 medals, each struck by a different U.S Mint production facility and each struck in a different finish. The set is as follows:

Philadelphia (P) – Reverse Proof (PR)

San Francisco (S) – Proof (PR)

West Point (W) – Enhanced Uncirculated (SP)

Denver (D) – Uncirculated (MS)
