2017-W 100 Dollar 1-oz Gold Liberty High Relief Proof NGC PF70UCAM 225th Anniversary - Black
A New Vision of Lady Liberty in Gorgeous 24k Gold!
The Embodiment of Ideals That Endure
For more than 200 years, Lady Liberty has been a proud symbol of American independence, freedom and opportunity for millions of people in the United States and around the world. Over the years, the way we see her has changed to reflect the times and the eye of the interpreter. Either capped or with flowing hair, fully clothed or with an exposed breast, holding a shield, torch or olive branch -- each version of Liberty is full of beauty, symbolism and representation. What we see in her is, ideally, what we'd like to see within all of us.
Art and Technology Combine for a Must-Have Coin!
With 2017 heralding the 225th anniversary of the United States Mint, you knew that they would come up with something special for the occasion! Introducing the 2017 1-oz Gold American Liberty High-Relief Proof. Produced by the West Point Mint, this gorgeous coin not only marks the U.S. Mint's anniversary, it also serves as the first of the American Liberty biennial series -- imagining Lady Liberty through the prism of our nation's cultural and ethnic diversity. For the series debut, Liberty is portrayed as a beautiful African-American woman, wreathed with stars reminiscent of Thomas Crawford's "Statue of Freedom" that graces the top of the U.S. Capitol building. Joined with a new, crisply-detailed interpretation of a bald eagle on the reverse, each proof is minted in superb high relief on one ounce of 99.99% pure gold using state-of-the-art technology.
Amazing Features That Make This Liberty Impossible to Resist!
In addition to gorgeous raised edge lettering, dual dating and a "W" mintmark, your legal tender $100 American Liberty High Relief Proof will also arrive with these phenomenal features:
- Your coin will be graded Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-graded American Liberty Proof will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!
- In addition, your American Liberty Proof will be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a black core insert -- providing you the best in protection while giving you clear sightlines and perfect visual contrast for every beautiful detail. In 1987, NGC used this same color of display core when they started grading coins, switching to white as their default color soon after. Now, NGC has reintroduced this popular "retro" core color!
- All of your proof's unique characteristics will be described in detail on the acrylic case’s special 225th anniversary label, celebrating the founding of the U.S. Mint in 1792 and featuring an image of the first mint in Philadelphia.
- Finally, you will receive all of the proof's original U.S. Mint-branded packaging, including a specially crafted black hardwood display box along with a booklet charting the history of this national emblem.
