The high level of artistry and craftsmanship, which the US Mint has become known for, is skillfully exhibited in the intricate engravings on each side of the coin. The front of the coin depicts Lady Liberty as she holds a pile of branches in one hand and extends the other in open invitation toward the rising sun. This illustration parallels how the US invites its new citizens to partake in its abundance of resources and opportunities.
The opposite side is stamped with the iconic Great Seal of the US. As our nations unofficial coat of arms, it consists of a bald eagle clutching an olive branch and a set of arrows from behind a shield. It serves as a reminder of the peace and protection promised to us by the federal government.
