Coins-United States | Kepi

Hey fellow Numi's good morning to all,
I am in the middle of celebrating an amazing Birthday week... yes, we here at the Desert Compound celebrate a full week of our birth! haha Cool right! I originally saw this 2021 medal when it came out in gold with an inflated price to go with it. I loved the design but couldn't justify $2,600+ for this raw coin. With that being said and to my great surprise the Mint came out with this same design in silver for 2022!
Now some coin facts... This is a 2022 American Liberty Silver Proof Medal. Minted in Philadelphia with an mintage of 75,000. 1 troy oz. of silver and a diameter of 40.60 mm. All packed neat and tidy in original Mint boxes!
The obverse shows a wild American Mustang bucking off a western style saddle, evoking the throwing off the yoke of British rule during the American Revolution. The rising sun is shown beneath the horse with "LIBERTY" and "2022". Now remember, I just loved this "Western Americana Wild" design...but honestly I would have never guessed the designs true representation without it being explained... I just thought "Cool"! haha Just my opinion...
The reverse shows a close up of an amazing eagle! "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" beneath it. I hope you enjoyed my blog and have a wonderful day! Comments are always welcome.

I'm right there with you. I still desire that gold, which is spectacular being struck in high relief. Sad that the silver isn't. Love the design and accompanying back story behind it none the less!

Happy Birthday Cuz Kepi, you have an excellent week at THE LAND. That truly is a beautiful design, so happy they chose to render it in Silver as well. And we finally have nice packaging back again. Those flimsy tiny cardboard boxes are just HORIBLE!!!

I bought one of these online on Thursday and another one at the ANA show for submission to NGC with an ANA label. Like you, I found this medal to have an excellent design. I have a post of my own to write about the experience, one of the best I have ever had with the US Mint, and I told the new mint director so in person at the ANA show.

Kepi this is indeed a beautiful piece by the mint. I too liked that they followed up the 2021 gold version with a 2022 silver version. I will say I’m a little surprised that these Liberty medals get nicer packaging than the gold or silver proof coins as of late. It’s great piece for your collection, and adds to your birthday celebration. So Happy birthday and enjoy!
