Coin obverses offer a high-relief rendition of sculptor Adolph A. Weinman’s Winged Liberty Head design for the dime struck in 1916. It shows a left-profile portrait of Lady Liberty wearing a winged Phrygian cap. Surrounding the portrait are inscriptions of LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, 2017 and Weinman’s overlapping ‘AW’ initials.

The reverse bears a high-relief version of Weinman’s 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) medal design with inscriptions of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, 1 OZ. Pd .9995 FINE, E PLURIBUS UNUM and $25 for the coin’s legal tender face value. The bullion piece is produced at the Philadelphia Mint but, as with other U.S. Mint bullion coins, it has no mint mark.
