NGC Special Label for 1792-2017 American Liberty Gold Coin
Posted on 3/14/2017
The US Mint has announced that the 1792-2017 American Liberty US Mint 225th Anniversary Gold $100 will go on sale April 6. The coin is the first to portray the allegorical figure of Liberty, which has graced United States coins since 1792, as an African-American woman.
The reverse of the coin depicts an American bald eagle in flight, while the edge features 225TH ANNIVERSARY in raised letters. Struck in high relief from one ounce of .9999 fine gold, this coin will have a maximum mintage of 100,000 pieces.
NGC will celebrate the 1792-2017 US Mint 225th Anniversary American Liberty Gold $100 coins by encapsulating them with its stunning American Flag Liberty label for no additional fee. In addition, every 1792-2017 American Liberty gold coin submitted to NGC will be encapsulated in a three-prong EdgeView® holder to better facilitate viewing of the coin's lettered edge.
