Prior to 2016, the United States Mint had only released two 24-karat gold coins in its 224-year history. With the release of the 2016 American Gold Centennial Coins, the US Mint has more than doubled its .9999 pure gold offerings with the release of three commemorative gold coins containing this purity level.
The American Gold Centennial Series honors three coin designs unveiled in 1916 during a period known as America’s Golden Age of coin design. The Mercury Dime, Standing Liberty Quarter, and Walking Liberty Half Dollar are each recognized on new 24-karat gold, fractional-weight coins.
Each 2016 ¼ oz American Gold Standing Liberty Quarter in this listing has a perfect Specimen Proof 70 grade from the NGC. Coins in this condition feature full, original luster from the mint, a mirrored finish, and lack all detracting flaws. As an Early Release designation, each coin was received by the NGC within the opening 30-day release period set by the US Mint.
The coin’s obverse side features the image of Standing Liberty, which depicts Liberty with chain-mail armor and a shield as she stands guard in the gap of a wall for the nation. Engravings include “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” and “2016.”
On the reverse of the 2016 ¼ oz American Gold Standing Liberty Quarter you’ll find the American bald eagle in midflight, with its wings spread wide. Engravings added to the original design include “AU 24K ¼ oz.”
