Introducing the Historic 2024 Liberty and Britannia Coin and Medal
For the first time ever, the 2024 Liberty and Britannia Coin and Medal bring the two largest mints together under one joint design collaboration! The United States and the United Kingdom represented through the iconic symbols of Liberty and Britannia.
Two Artists – One Epic Design
Gracing the obverse design as complementary and equal elements are Liberty and Britannia. The reverse design further builds on the relationship between the two nations with a Bristlecone Pine on the left side and an English Yew on the right, separated by the Atlantic Ocean.
Meet Joe Menna – The U.S. Mint’s Chief Engraver
Joe Menna began working for the U.S. Mint in 2005. He was the first full-time artist possessing both digital and traditional skillsets hired by the U.S. Mint. In 2019, Menna became the U.S. Mint’s 14th Chief Engraver. With a background in sculpting, Menna created the world’s first digitally sculpted coin and has won multiple Coin of the Year Awards.
“Our production methods might be different, but I felt our design workflows were very much alike. It was the best experience I have ever had as a professional artist. The obverse was a wonderfully collaborative and profound learning experience. We shared ideas, images and thought in real time and in the end, I not only had a new colleague, but a new friend.” – Joe Menna
Meet Gordon Summers – The Royal Mint’s Chief Engraver

“I think the Mints have more in common than different. I felt, from the start, that there was a huge potential in this project to create something truly unique, which would demonstrate both the commonality and the uniqueness of our nations. I’d love to work on this type of project again. It’s great to work with new people and discover common ground.” – Gordon Summers
