Product Details
Beginning with this 2020 release, Monnaie de Paris will retrace the history of American independence through a series of collector coins. This fourth release celebrates the Libertas Americana medals.

Coin Highlights:
  • Limited mintage of only 2,000 coins!
  • Contains 2 oz of fine silver in high relief with a beautiful Proof finish.
  • Packaged in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity from the Monnaie de Paris.
  • Obverse: France is symbolized by Minerva, helmeted and armed with a spear protecting young American in the guise of Hercules as a child from the British Leopard thanks to her shield decorated with three lilies. Young Hercules is seated in his swaddling clothes on a shield, choking two snakes, which refer to the victories over the armies of Generals Burgoyne at Saratoga and Cornwallis at Yorktown. The legend, taken from Book III of Horace's Odes, means, "the brave child was helped by the gods." It also reads "17 / 19 OCT. 1777. / 1781." The signature "DUPRE F." is engraved under the leopard's tail. The year "2023" and "RF" are also present.
  • Reverse: Depicting Liberty, the left profile bust of a slender young woman as an American representation of Liberty. Her unbound hair flutters in the wind, with a staff topped by the cap of liberty resting on her right shoulder. She inspired Galle to engrave "French Liberty" for the monetary proof in 1792. Under the bust, one can see the signature of "DUPRE."
  • Certified by the Monnaie de Paris.

"Libertas Americana" was a personal initiative of Benjamin Franklin. He therefore bore the costs alone. True to his altruistic ideals, he offered diplomatic tool to his country. On April 6, 1783, he sent a silver copy to the Grand Master of Malta, Emmanuel de Rohan-Polduc, with a request for protection for his fellow citizens landing in the ports of Malta. In a letter dated June 21, 1783, the Grand Master of Malta accepted his proposal after thanking him for his gesture and the quality of the medal in the following terms: "This monument to American Liberty has a distinguished place in my cabinet."
