Lady Liberty To Be Portrayed as Black Woman on new Coin

For the first time in U.S. history, Lady Liberty will be portrayed as a black woman on an officially minted coin. "As we as a nation continue to evolve, so does liberty's representation.

We live in a nation which affords us the opportunity to dream big and try to accomplish the seemingly impossible,"  U.S.

Mint Chief of Staff Elisa Basnight said.

The United State Mint  unveiled the new $100 gold coin Thursday in celebration of its 225th anniversary.  SEE MORE: These Rare 1-Cent Coins Just Sold For A Pretty Penny It's the first in a series of diverse 24-karat gold coins that will depict Lady Liberty as Asian-American, Hispanic-American and Indian-American.
