When sales opened, the price was $1,940 each for the reeded edge gold coins struck at the West Point Mint. Pricing is assessed for possibly change weekly, depending on the range of change in the spot price of gold.

The plain edge silver medals are offered at $99.95 each.

The coin and medal exhibit the same degree of high relief in the design. The exact same Liberty obverse design is paired with an Eagle reverse. The only difference in design is that the medal carries no coinage inscriptions.
