West Point •W•

 

The United States Mint fulfilled renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original vision of an ultra high relief double eagle gold coin with the release of the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin, closing one era of classic American coin design and ushering in a new one.

The 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin is the latest in that new era, a piece that renders contemporary designs using the latest in modern digital and manufacturing technology.

United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Justin Kunz has created a modern depiction of Liberty for the obverse (heads side), evoking the ideals of liberty, courage and hope. Artistic Infusion Program artist Paul Balan’s reverse (tails) design depicts an American eagle rising in flight, gripping a branch in its talons as an embodiment of freedom.

The 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin represents our proud numismatic heritage and glimmering future at their very best.

Containing one troy ounce of .9999 fine 24–karat gold, these lustrous high relief coins are among the world’s purest gold coins. Each is encapsulated and presented in a black velvet presentation case and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. It will be a treasured addition to any collection.  Get yours TODAY!

Born Jacqueline Lee Bouvier, Jacqueline Kennedy grew up near Washington, D.C., and was educated in private schools and studied ballet. Mrs. Kennedy brought a strong interest in the arts to the White House. Fluent in several languages, she charmed world leaders at the White House and on trips abroad. Co-founder of the White House Historical Association, she gave a televised tour following its renovation. The reverse (tails) depict the species of saucer magnolia Mrs. Kennedy chose to be planted in a White House garden and near the eternal flame at her husband’s grave in Arlington National Cemetery. The petals stretch across the globe, its tips connecting the points of some of her most notable diplomatic visits.

These Presidential $1 Coins – with circulating finishes minted at the U.S. Mint at Denver and Philadelphia – have never been placed into circulation. Featuring edge-incused inscriptions of the year, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and the mint mark, the Kennedy $1 coin presents a new, eye-catching likeness of President Kennedy on the obverse (heads) and has a common reverse (tails) design featuring a dramatic perspective of the Statue of Liberty.

Look for the 2015 Coin and Chronicles Set – Harry S. Truman on June 30th! This unique keepsake will feature a Presidential $1 Reverse Proof Coin—only available as a part of this set—along with a silver presidential medal, stamp and companion informational booklet. They are all displayed in a rich red folder covered in a soft-touch material with a handsome textured look that makes an excellent gift.

And did you know that Truman, a World War I veteran, led the effort to establish a single day of commemoration for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their service? Armed Forces Day, May 16, was created to celebrate the unification of all the branches of the military under the Department of Defense.

Celebrate With These Special Collectibles

It’s hard to imagine that President John F. Kennedy would have turned 98 years old this month. Born May 29, 1917, in Brookline, Mass., highlights of his brief time in office included the launch of Freedom 7, the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty and establishment of the Peace Corps. He also appointed United States Mint Director Eva Adams, who served in the office until 1969.

Celebrate his birthday this year with special keepsakes like the 50th Anniversary Kennedy Half Dollar Silver Coin Collection! Released last year, it includes four Kennedy half dollars struck in 90 percent silver with four different finishes – one from each of the United States Mint facilities in West Point, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Denver. Perfect for any collector or a great gift for someone special!
