NGC Special Label for American Liberty 225th Anniversary Silver Four-Medal Set
Posted on 8/28/2017
The US Mint has announced that the American Liberty 225th Anniversary Silver Four-Medal Set will go on sale October 19. The medals celebrate the 225th Anniversary of the US Mint, which was established by the Coinage Act of April 2, 1792.
The obverse of these medals features the allegorical figure of Liberty that appeared on both the gold $100 coin released by the US Mint in April, as well as the one ounce Proof silver medal released by the US Mint in June. The reverse depicts an American bald eagle in flight.
Each medal in the set will be struck by a different US Mint facility with a different finish: Philadelphia (Reverse Proof), San Francisco (Proof), West Point (Enhanced Uncirculated) and Denver (Uncirculated).
NGC will celebrate the American Liberty 225th Anniversary Silver Four-Medal Set by encapsulating them with its US Mint 225th Anniversary label for no additional fee. These coins will be attributed to the American Liberty Four-Medal Set on the NGC certification label.
