Love the coin! *** Unnecessary Political Commentary Removed by the Staff ***

Although I like them, the stars in the tiara(?) are large enough they look like they weigh a ton and would give her a stiff neck!

Yes you're all right Eagle really makes this coin and the stars are gigantic! I didn't actually notice how big until I took the pics.

I had also purchased the American Platinum Eagle Coin and sent it right back, ugliest darn thing, looked like Lady Liberty was stung by a bee and really mad about it.

Yes, they did. I like the set a lot. The packaging matches my 2014 Silver Kennedy half dollar set.

Super nice. I remember a kerfuffle about the ethnicity of the subject on the coin medal. I think she's fantastic.

edit: looking back through past posts, I mentioned I wasn't a big fan of the huge stars/tiara. I guess it's just something I've gotten used to. In fact I quite like them now. I think perhaps that this design was such a break from tradition in many ways that it was a big adjustment for me.

I've gotta say when I first saw this coin I thought it was awesome for a modern piece

I miss the days of having different renditions of liberty on our coins, so seeing a new artist's fresh idea of how liberty should look is pretty awesome. I think the only thing that detracts from the design is the typeface on the reverse, the initials and mintmark just look like they're floating in space

@Kulman47: Thanks for posting your 2017 American Liberty medal (it's not a coin - jbuck got it right!).

It's definitely a nicely-executed medal - I agree, however, with those who believe that the over-sized stars on the headband could have been reduced a bit to improve the medal's aesthetic!
