The US Mint and Treasury will for the first time issue a commemorative coin depicting Lady Liberty as a black woman.
The coin commemorates the Mint’s 225th anniversary and shows Liberty with a crown of stars and a toga-like dress.
The 24-carat coin will weigh 28g (1oz) and have a face value of $100 (£80).
The US Mint says it plans to issue further coins depicting Liberty as women from ethnic minorities, such as Asian, Hispanic or Indian Americans.
But such cisheteronormativity; when will Lady Liberty be Ladyboy Liberty? 😉
