Introducing the 2016 Standing Liberty Quarter Centennial Gold Coin! This gold coin is an event that’s been 100 years in the making.
Beautifully struck in .9999 fine, 24–karat gold, this gold 2016 centennial anniversary release celebrates Hermon A. MacNeil’s original “Standing Liberty” quarter design. Each gold coin contains one–quarter troy ounce of 24–karat gold, symbolic of the coin’s denomination, and has a business strike finish.
The obverse (heads) features Liberty holding a shield and olive branch as she steps through an opening in a wall bearing 13 stars. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “AU 24K,” “1/4 oz.,” and “2016.”
The reverse (tails) depicts an eagle in flight flanked by 13 stars. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “QUARTER DOLLAR.”
Each coin is encapsulated and hand–packaged in a custom–designed, black matte hardwood presentation case and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
In 2016, the U.S. Mint will mark the centenary anniversary of three numismatic icons with the release of the Mercury Dime, Standing Liberty Quarter, and Walking Liberty Half Dollar Centennial Gold Coins.
