ABOUT THE DESIGN
“Lady Liberty” (obverse) – This design was inspired by John Mercanti’s rendition of the Lady Liberty obverse of the United States Mint’s Platinum American Eagle coin, first minted in 1997. Mercanti, a famous American sculptor and engraver has designed many of the U.S. Mint’s most popular gold coins over the last several decades, but the Platinum American Eagle obverse is widely considered to be his best work, you can get more info on these fractional platinum coins when buying the Lady Liberty gold coin.
Money Metals Exchange‘s gold round incorporates this stunning depiction of the head of Lady Liberty, a female figure representing Libertas – the Roman goddess of Freedom – along with the word LIBERTY inner-stitched between the individual spokes of her crown.
Descending Eagle (reverse) – The bald eagle is a popular symbol placed on numerous U.S. coins, beginning in 1795 and becoming more prevalent in the mid-1800’s. The bald eagle has been a long-standing symbol of the United States of America dating back to 1782 when it was chosen as the country’s emblem at the time the seal of the United States was first adopted. The eagle was selected due to its long life, great strength, and majestic look and because it was then believed to exist only in North America.
HOW A COIN PRESS DIE IS CREATED
When the design concept has been perfected on paper, a careful plan is established to transform the design into 3-dimensional form. An 8-inch diameter oil, clay sculpture is made, and a similar-sized plaster cast is constructed, which brings out sharper detail in the finished round. The artist looks for fluid lines and dynamic compositions to create a feeling of life and motion. Once this stage is complete a reverse impression of the plaster cast is sent to the die engraver, where a pantograph machine is used to reduce the mold to the size needed and to engrave the die in hardened steel, yielding up to 500,000 impressions in the coin press.
