Introducing the First Amendment to the United States Constitution Platinum Proof Coin Series featuring newly designed one-ounce 99.95 percent platinum proof coins. This five-year series (2021-2025) will reflect the five freedoms in the First Amendment —“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
This series uses the lifecycle of the oak tree from seedling to a mighty oak as a metaphor for our country’s growth as a Nation that values freedom. Liberty grows to a thing of strength and beauty from a seed—our Bill of Rights. Each of the freedoms enumerated in the First Amendment contributes to the growth and development of the Nation.
The first coin in the program is the 2021 First Amendment to the United States Constitution Platinum Proof Coin – Freedom of Religion.
The obverse design depicts a seedling and an acorn surrounded by the inscription “WITH FREEDOM OF RELIGION LIBERTY GROWS.” Additional inscriptions are “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “2021.” It was designed by Artistic Infusion Program Designer Donna Weaver and sculpted by Medallic Artist Joseph Menna.
The common reverse design for this series depicts an eagle in flight, an olive branch in its talons. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “$100,” “1 OZ.,” and “.9995 PLATINUM.”
It was designed by Artistic Infusion Program Designer Patricia Lucas-Morris and sculpted by Medallic Artist Don Everhart.
