Description & Specs
75% of the 500 mintage is already sold!! U.S. Mint 12th Chief Engraver John Mercanti created August Saint-Gauden's intended design for Lady Liberty using original plasters now housed at the National Historic Site in New Hampshire. This design is the original version unveiled in 1907 BUT U.S. Mint officials removed the wings and headdress for the Walking Lady Liberty coinage. Each 1oz .9999 Gold Ultra High Relief Proof is certified in perfect PF70 condition by NGC with certificate of authenticity. We are including a wood presentation box, with an ingot of Saint-Gaudens profile sculpted by John Mercanti, story booklet detailing the background on Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the National Park Foundation and the history of Saint-Gaudens Winged Liberty. John Mercanti was the 12th Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint. He finished the plaster of the winged liberty design just as Saint-Gaudens had imagined. This was sent to the Royal Mint and they used their expertise in striking high relief proofs to make it come to life first in 2016, followed by the BH Mayer Mint (Germany) for 2017! He was Chief Engraver during the US Mint’s 2009 launch of the Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Saint which paid tribute to Saint-Gaudens original design so he had an intimate understanding of this most classic American design.
