Standing over 150 ft. tall, the ”The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World,” or more commonly referred to as the ”The Statue of Liberty,” has become a world-wide icon visited by over four million people each year. As Lady Liberty recently celebrated her 130th Anniversary, collectors are invited to participate by adding the 1 oz. Statue of Liberty Medal Silver Proof to their collections. This beautiful commemorative is bursting with historic symbolism, tradition, and heart as it revives a past medal that was originally struck 120 years ago in 1896.

Nearly an exact restrike of the 1896 medal that was created to honor the 10th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty, this newly released Silver Statue of Liberty Medal has resurfaced to celebrate 120 more years of both the Statue of Liberty and the Franco-American Union. Struck by the Monnaie de Paris, each medal contains 1 oz. of .950 fine silver and is available ungraded in black velvet bags or in protective slabs after being certified by the experts of the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). After selling out in only a few days, MS70 releases are again in-stock and available for purchase. Also available are MS69-graded medals.

An outstanding gift from the people of France, the Statue of Liberty materialized the alliance between France and the U.S. during the American Revolution. Because of this significant historical gift, it was only appropriate that both the original Liberty Medal and this stunning commemorative piece were struck by the talented engravers at the Paris Mint. Established in the year 864, the Paris Mint specializes in creating top-quality releases that many times include important, historical elements.

In 1896, numismatics honored the Franco-American Union by showcasing the Statue of Liberty. Continue this historical celebration by adding the newly-minted Statue of Liberty Medal Silver Proof to your collection today.
