The United States Mint has announced that the 2019 American Liberty Silver Medal will be available to order starting Thursday, August 15, 2019. The medal will be priced at $99.95 and is 2.5 ounces of 99.9% pure silver. It measures two inches in diameter and has a matte finish.
The medal offers the same Obverse design of the American Liberty gold coin which will also go on sale the same day. It will come in a black lacquered hardwood presentation case and will come with the Mint’s usual Certificate of Authenticity. The medal is struck in the Mint’s Philadelphia location.
The United States Mint American Liberty Program celebrates modern renditions of the iconic Liberty that embody the ideals of freedom and equality first set forth in our Declaration of Independence. In the 227 years since its establishment, the United States Mint has issued a vast array of medals with the concept of Liberty personified by allegorical female figures. More than two centuries of evolution have borne witness to an ever-changing symbol. Today’s American Liberty Medals are reinvigorating this motif with stunning, modern depictions of the allegorical Lady Liberty. Their images maintain our Nation’s intimate connection with its history and founding principles, while at the same time recognizing our forward-looking, diverse and dynamic population and culture.United States Mint
