2023 American Liberty Silver Medal
The 2023 American Liberty Silver Medal shares the same design as the 2023 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin. They are part of the American Liberty Gold Coin and Silver Medal Program. The program features modern renditions of the concept of liberty.
The obverse design of the 2023 American Liberty medal shows a bristlecone pine, a species native to California, Nevada, and Utah. It is thought to be one 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 that is first to repopulate the land after cataclysmic changes such as a lava run or glacial runoff.
The obverse (heads) features a bristlecone pine, thought to be the oldest living organisms on Earth.
The reverse (tails) depicts a young bald eagle standing on a rocky outcropping moments before it takes flight.
