The obverse side of the coin depicts Winged Liberty, Adolph W. Weinman’s popular design that graced the Mercury Dime from 1916-1945.

Arching over Mercury’s head is ‘Liberty’ .’In God We Trust’ is written right below his chin. Stylized initials “AW”, the artist’s initials, are written below the back of his neck. Below the image is ‘2021’.
The reverse features Weinman’s design that was made famous by the 1907 American Institute of Architects gold medal. It is a highly detailed image of an American bald eagle with an olive branch clutched in its beak and right talon. The high relief minting really highlights Weinman’s design and you can see every detail of his feathers and piercing eyes. Arched above the picture of the eagle are the words ‘United States of America’. To the left of the eagle’s beak is ‘$25’. On the rock that the eagle is standing on is etched ‘1 oz. Pd .9995 fine’ and ‘E Pluribus Unum’, the Latin motto of the United States meaning “From many one.”
