2023 U.S. Mint Liberty Medal Empty 2023 U.S. Mint Liberty Medal

I couldn't pass up the newest liberty medal as it's quite the looker to me. Proof minted in Philadelphia, the theme is perseverance, and the ancient Bristlecone pine (Pinus longaeva) is an excellent representation of that. It grows one inch every one hundred years and is found in the high arid regions of Utah, Nevada and eastern California. The reverse showcases a cool looking eagle on an outcrop.

Very nice. We once had another species of Bristlecone Pine - pinus aristata - but it wasn't a good specimen and was taken out when the garden was remodelled.

You gave it a try and that's what counts. Personally, I've never seen a Bristlecone Pine.
