After more than 100 years, US Mint 12th Chief Engraver John Mercanti brought Augustus Saint-Gauden's intended design for Lady Liberty to life using original plasters which are now housed at the National Historic Site in New Hampshire. This original version was unveiled in 1907, but U.S. Mint officials removed the wings and feathered head-dress for the Walking Lady Liberty coinage that was later minted. At the time - technology just simply wasn't ready to execute Saint-Guadens' intricate design so modifications were required.
Winged Liberty Silver Saint-Gaudens Design
John Mercanti, having an intimate understanding of this most classic American design due to being US Mint Chief Engraver during the US Mint's 2009 launch of the Ultra High Relief Double Eagle coin, finished the plaster of the winged liberty design just as Saint-Gaudens had imagined; this was then sent to the Royal Mint where they used their expertise in striking high relief proofs to make this piece come to life!
Each 1oz Silver Winged Liberty High Relief Commemorative is certified Gem Proof by NGC and is officially authorized by the National Park Foundation on behalf of the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site. The NGC label itself is a John Mercanti Signature label and will arrive in a velvet bag with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity (COA).
