The United States Mint American Liberty Gold Coin Program celebrates modern interpretations of the concept of American liberty, exploring the theme beyond the classical tradition of portraits of allegorical “Liberty.”
Since its establishment more than 230 years ago, the United States Mint has issued a vast array of coins with the concept of liberty personified by allegorical female figures. The 2023 American Liberty Gold Proof Coin, once again, offers a different interpretation—a bold representation of the perseverance of American liberty.
The obverse (heads) design features a bristlecone pine, a species native to California, Nevada, and Utah, thought to be the oldest living organisms on Earth, living up to 5,000 years. Bristlecone pines grow in places where other plants cannot and are often the species first to repopulate the land after cataclysmic changes, such as a lava run or glacial runoff. Inscriptions are "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2023."
The reverse (tails) design depicts a young bald eagle standing on a rocky outcropping moments before it takes flight. Inscriptions are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," “1 OZ.," ".9999 FINE GOLD," "$100," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
