LIMITED MINTAGE OF ONLY 2,500 WORLDWIDE!
One of the most famous coin designers in American history, Augustus Saint-Gaudens created three coin designs as he battled cancer. President Theodore Roosevelt saw to it that Saint-Gaudens's designs for the $10 and $20 gold coins made it onto U.S coinage. His design for the cent, though, was replaced by the Lincoln Cent.
This set also comes with COA and Story Book.
Now, Commonwealth Mint, with authorization from the National Parks Department is making Saint-Gaudens's penny designs available for the first time. This set includes a 1 oz piece struck from .999 fine silver and with a mintage of 2,500 and a copper nickel piece struck at the same diameter as a US cent, which gives collectors the chance to see it as it would have appeared.
Saint-Gaudens's obverse features a left-side portrait of Liberty. He renders her wearing a laurel wreath, a symbol of the goddess Victory, on whom he modeled her. Thirteen stars represent the original states on the top half of the rim.
When this 1 oz silver coin was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation it received the perfect grade of Proof 70 as well as the Ultra Cameo designation. It's in flawless condition and has great visual contrast making this coin extremely collectible.
