They say it's the first time s "non-white" has been depicted as Lady Liberty. How can you tell by looking at a coin?
The lips.

I don't get the reason for making it $100 face value if it's still only one ounce of gold. Is it just because it has to have a different face value from the regular $20 one?

I believe I also heard some woman connected with the Treasury say they have plans to use Asians, American Indians and other ethnic backgrounds to depict Lady Liberty.

To a conservative, political correctness is a terrible thing.
Liberty is just for white people?

Anyway, I guess most people don't realize the Saint-Gaudens double eagle Lady Liberty was modeled by an African-American, Hettie Anderson.

Never mind. Just found link.

Numismatically speaking, it is one of the most beautifully executed coins I've seen in a long while. If the end product looks this good, I'm ordering one.

Rosa Parks must have already been on some sort of gold coin, right?

Talk about government waste, why does the government make coins like this that no one will use. Same goes for the gold colored dollar coins and the new quarters have different engravings on the back since the have covered all 50 states. The gold colored dollar coins have to be ask for at the bank since they keep them in the vault. Seems to me the mint employes a whole lot of expensive employees to dream up coins no one uses.
