The American Liberty high relief gold coin is a one-ounce gold bullion coin issued by the United States Mint since 2015.[1] This coin was the first 100 dollar gold coin to be issued by the US Mint.

Description[edit]

The first American Liberty coin was issued in 2015, and new coins have been released every other year since. The coins are struck at the West Point Mint on a 1 oz. 24 karat gold planchet.[1]

Design[edit]

Designs for the American Liberty coins are submitted to the US Mint via the Artistic Infusion Program. The United States Commission of Fine Arts reviews the proposed designs and makes recommendations, which the Mint may or may not use.
