First Look! 2024 Liberty and Britannia Gold Coin

After announcing the collaborative effort, the United States Mint has released high-resolution images of the joint-designed 2024 Liberty and Britannia Gold Coin from it and the Royal Mint of England. Following a successful joint project in 2021 featuring the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower Voyage coins and medals, the United States Mint and The Royal Mint are working together once again on a different type of project. This one features a unique design collaboration between the Chief Engravers of two of the world’s largest and oldest Mints. The collaborative design features Liberty and Britannia, two historical themes featured on many coins over the years, but never together on one unified design. 

The 2024 Liberty and Britannia gold coin will be released later this year.

The design features allegorical Liberty and Britannia depicted in stoic profile portraits featuring complementary and balancing elements suggestive of the faces on a playing card. Their appearance identifies each figure; Liberty carries a torch and is adorned with stars, while Britannia wields a trident and wears a Corinthian helmet. Inscriptions will be appropriate for each nation.

Pricing and a specific release date were not available at the time of the article.
