The US Mint is giving collectors the opportunity to celebrate one of America's founding documents with a three coin series within a series. This is the second piece celebrating one of the three rights cited in the Declaration of Independence: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. It continues the rich tradition of the Proof Platinum Eagle, which dates back to 1997. Like its predecessors, this piece was struck on a one ounce planchet of. 9995 fine platinum at the West Point Mint.
It bears that mint's "W" mint mark on the reverse. Striking Liberty Design by Justin Kunz. Justin Kunz's obverse design, which was sculpted by Joseph Menna, features Liberty facing the holder with her torch in one hand, and a book in the other. The book serves as a symbol of the rule of law.
Liberty overlooks America's lakes, mountains, and prairies, symbols of America's spirit of exploration of new places, ideas, and ways of life. The word "LIBERTY" is inscribed on this face in cursive, appearing just as the word was written on the Declaration of Independence. Patricia Lucas-Morris designed, and Don Everhart sculpted, the reverse, which is common to all three issues in this series.
It features a closeup look at an eagle in flight. The bird is carrying an olive branch, a traditional symbol of peace. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin its highest grade, Proof 70 (PF70) which means that the coin is flawless as seen under 5x magnification. NGC also certified the coin Ultra Cameo (UC), thus indicating that its heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields contrast particularly sharply.
