Hi, I’m Robert Masters.
Thank you for tuning into the Coins A-Z video channel.

The 2017 American Liberty Gold Proof Coin

I’m here with my colleague and friend, DT, who has been generous enough to bring over his just received parcel from the U.S. Mint for the purpose of allowing me to film this channel’s first unboxing.
The 2017-W American Liberty 225th Anniversary High Relief 1 oz. gold proof coin was released for sale by the US Mint on April 6, 2017 at 12 noon for an initial price of $1,640.00. The maximum mintage for this coin is 100,000 but there’s no way of telling at this time what the actual or declared final mintage will be when the U.S. Mint pulls them out of their catalogue.1 First day sales of this coin is 14,285 coins sold. It’s a very pure, 4 9’s (999.9 millesimal fineness rating) proof gold coin. There is no finer purity gold coin minted by the US Mint than 4 9’s. 4 9’s is the equivalent of pure 24 karat gold. In comparison, the so-called standard bearer gold bullion coin minted by the US Mint, the American Gold Eagle, is only 917 millesimal fine, being that a full 3% of the coin by weight is silver.2
According to the U.S. Mint, the 2017 American Liberty proof gold coin is the first in a series of 24-karat gold coins that the United States Mint will issue biennially (every 2 years). These coins will feature designs that depict an allegorical Liberty in a variety of contemporary forms including designs representing Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Indian-Americans among others to reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States.

The “proof” designation is a type of finish on minted coins. Proof finishes are achieved typically by multiple strikes of the planchet by special dies that have been highly polished and treated. These dies are often changed more frequently than dies used to mint ordinary (usually referred to as “business strike”) coins or even brilliant uncirculated collector and bullion coins. The result is typically a coin that has mirrored “fields” (lower background surfaces of the design) and frosted or matte “devices” (raised relief portions of the design). A proof coin is typically very distinguishable from a BU (brilliant uncirculated) finished coin and the extra costs that go into producing proof coins is worked into the higher premiums charged for these highly collectable and visually striking coins.

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding who is depicted on this coin particularly on major coin blogs or coin related forums.3, 4, 5 The controversy is basically a result of a small minority of people who do not think it’s a good idea that a black woman is depicted on a U.S. coin. As the vast majority of coin collectors have pointed out in the discussions in these blogs / forums, the argument by this small group of people is fallacious or constitutes an ignorance about this coin.

According to Rhett Jeppson (the Principal Deputy Director of the U.S. Mint) officials at the U.S. Mint have chosen “Remembering our Past, Embracing the Future” as the Mint’s theme for the 225th Anniversary year.6 Jeppson goes on to state, “The coin demonstrates our roots in the past through such traditional elements as the inscriptions United States of America, Liberty, E Pluribus Unum and In God We Trust. We boldly look to the future by casting Liberty in a new light, as an African-American woman wearing a crown of stars, looking forward to ever brighter chapters in our Nation’s history book.”

Now, someone may not like the design of the coin regardless of the fact that it depicts a black woman…and that’s fine. Aesthetic tastes can certainly differ, and to each their own with aesthetics. The controversy noted previously is not as a result of people who are not aesthetically drawn to the coin’s design, but rather have a problem with a black woman being featured on a coin.
Speaking of the coin’s design, as with most modern U.S. Mint coins, a committee7 of members, said to be an “informed, experienced and impartial resource“, is designated to advise the Secretary of the Treasury as to which coin designs are most suitable and appropriate for that issue. This committee chooses a complete design, from numerous separate obverse and reverse submissions; their design recommendation is what ultimately becomes the design of modern U.S. Mint minted coins.
