Lady Liberty is depicted with twists in her hair.
The United States Mint just released an image of its latest commemorative collector’s coin ― and it features a black woman.
On Thursday, the United States Mint and Treasury revealed the 2017 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin, commemorating the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Mint. The coin has a depiction of Lady Liberty like we’ve never seen her: a black woman with twists in her hair, wearing a crown of stars.
