What an exciting year 2016 has been for coin enthusiasts ?!! In April we saw the release of the Mercury Dime Centennial Gold coin and it became unavailable within an hour. More about that here. The second in line this year was the Standing Liberty quarter designed in 1916 by Hermon Atkins Macneil. It has been honored with the Standing Liberty 2016 Centennial Gold coin released on Sep 8th 2016. Each coin has one-quarter troy ounce of 24-karat gold symbolic of the denomination of the original quarter dollar.
