These 2000 Liberian silver $20 coins contain .6423 ounces of .999 pure silver and contain the faces of some of the United States's most storied presidents. These coins make excellent legal tender additions to presidential-themed coin collections and also provide a source of silver.
In 2000, the Republic of Liberia in West Africa minted a series of silver coins featuring the faces of the U.S. presidents. This might seem rather odd to those unaware of the role of the United States in Liberia's creation. Beginning in the 1920s, freed slaves from the United States began to colonize Liberia, eventually establishing a government based on an American model. The capital of Liberia is named Monrovia, after president James Monroe.
The reverse of these coins contains a portrait of an American president with inscriptions of their name, their term in office, and the coin's denomination of $20. Each president from George Washington through Bill Clinton is featured in this Liberian $20 coin series, which predates the current U.S. Mint presidential coin series by over a decade...in silver!
The obverse of the coins features the national coat of arms of Liberia. The Liberian coat of arms depicts a three-masted ship carrying colonists toward the coast. The banners at the top and bottom of the national arms bear the phrases "THE LOVE OF LIBERTY BROUGHT US HERE" and "REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA."
