CoinGold Ounce 2024 Commander George Patton

The Republic of Liberia has been issuing its own coinage denominated in Liberian Dollars since 1847. Apart from the circulating coinage, the country also allows some foreign mints to strike non-circulating commemorative and bullion coins under its authority. These are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including the one troy ounce (1oz) of gold format.

This coin is part of the second release in the Commanders series by the Scottsdale Mint, and features General George Patton.

The mint says about it:
In the theater of war, George S. Patton's name is synonymous with remarkable strength. As an iconic figure, Patton's indomitable spirit and strategic brilliance have left an enduring mark on the tapestry of military history. Commanding tanks that rumbled and leading soldiers who rallied under his guidance, Patton emerged as a titan, navigating his forces to triumph against the chaotic backdrop of war. His methods, though testing the patience of superiors, proved so wildly successful that they rendered any opposition futile, solidifying Patton's reputation as a maverick whose unorthodox brilliance defied convention.

"A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week." - George S. Patton

Enter the realm of military prowess with the Scottsdale Mint Commander's Series, a collection that pays homage to the extraordinary leaders who shaped the destiny of nations. In the forthcoming installment dedicated to George Patton, the series unfolds a narrative that captures the essence of a man whose strategic acumen and fearless leadership echoed through the ages. Each intricately crafted coin in this series, including the upcoming tribute to Patton, bears witness to the chaos of battle through its unique ruptured edge - a symbol of the tumultuous nature of the theaters where these commanders made history.

The obverse design displays the Coat of Arms of Liberia; it features a shield displaying a picture of a 19th century ship arriving home (Liberia) - a symbol of the freed slaves brought back home from the United States, who founded the country. On a ribbon below the shield is the name of the country, REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA, and above is a scroll with the national motto: THE LOVE OF LIBERTY BROUGHT US HERE. Within the shield are several elements, including: a plough and spade (representing dignity and labour), a rising sun (the birth of a nation), a palm tree (prosperity), and a white flying dove with an open scroll in its claws (for peace).

Around below the Coat of Arms, the face value of the coin: 10,000 DOLLARS (ten thousand Liberian Dollars).

Beneath that near the rim, the precious metal content: 9999 FINE GOLD ~ 1 TROY OZ (one troy ounce of 99.99% gold).
