WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of the Treasury released the 2017 American Liberty Gold coin this week.

“Remembering our Past, Embracing the Future” is the mint's theme for their anniversary. The coin is a first of it's kind in a series of 24-kart gold coins that the U.S. will issue biennially. Each coin will represent an allegorical Liberty to reflect cultural and ethnic diversity in the states.
