US Mint Opens Sales for American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin August 19

The United States Mint will accept orders for the 2021 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin beginning on August 19 at noon EDT. Each coin contains one ounce of 99.99 percent fine, 24-karat gold. Mintage is set at 12,500 coins, with orders limited to one per household for the first 24 hours of sales.

American Liberty High Relief Gold Coins are produced at the Mint’s West Point facility and display modern interpretations of the representation of American Liberty. In 2021, the obverse portrays Liberty as a wild American Mustang horse, bucking off a western-style saddle, evoking the throwing off of the yoke of British rule during the American Revolution. The horse is centered on a rising sun. Inscriptions include “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2021.” The design was created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Designer Beth Zaiken and sculpted by United States Mint Medallic Artist Craig A. Campbell.

The reverse depicts a dramatic view of an eagle about to land, with the inscriptions “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “1 OZ.,” “.9999 FINE GOLD,” “$100,” and “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.” The design was created by AIP Designer Richard Masters and sculpted by Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill.

Each coin is hand packaged in an exquisite, black presentation case accompanied by the Mint’s Certificate of Authenticity.

About the United States Mint

The United States Mint also produces numismatic products, including proof, uncirculated, and commemorative coins; Congressional Gold Medals; and silver and gold bullion coins. The Mint’s numismatic programs are self-sustaining and operate at no cost to taxpayers.

Since Congress created the United States Mint on April 2, 1792, the primary mission of the Mint is to produce an adequate volume of circulating coinage for the nation. As a self-funded agency, the United States Mint turns revenues beyond its operating expenses over to the General Fund of the Treasury. Other responsibilities include: Maintaining physical custody and protection of the Nation's $100 billion of U.S. gold and silver assets; Manufacturing and selling platinum, gold, and silver bullion coins; and Overseeing production facilities in Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point, as well as the U.S. Bullion Depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky.

    • The last few high-relief gold coins had mintages of 50,000. This one only has a mintage of 12.500. Additionally, you have to keep in mind that there now seems to be a growing community of people who flip U.S. mint products. There are already many presale listings up on eBay with many watchers (and even one sold listing). Overall it seems like there could be a lot of hype for this set but who knows.
