  • Year of Issue: 2015

Background

The 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin will add breadth and depth to the collections of numismatists everywhere. The high-relief 24-karat gold coin, with a mintage limit of 50,000 and a nominal denomination of $100, was minted at West Point, N.Y., and went on sale July 30, 2015.

The design was strongly influenced by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee, an 11-member body established in 2003 by Congress to advise the Secretary of the Treasury on the themes and designs of all U.S. coins and medals. The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts, a seven-member group established by Congress in 1910, also reviewed candidate designs and made recommendations.
