2019 American Liberty High Relief Series Up Next In U.S. Mint Releases

Back in 2015, the United States Mint began a series that would be released every other year.

These new versions would and should represent freedom and equality while also representing their ever-changing evolution brought forth by the depiction of a female figure such as Lady Liberty. While giving this figure a modern look, it would also depict our nation’s connection with the past in addition to looking towards a future that features diversity and culture.

As 2017 was the last year to release a silver and gold high relief medal in the series, tomorrow will be the third release as the Mint will have a 2019 American Liberty High Relief...read more
