    You said, “This is the first time Lady Liberty has been presented as anything other than a white woman.” This is incorrect. From 1854 to1889, the three-dollar gold piece had Lady Liberty as an Indian princess on its obverse.

    Thirty-five years of numismatic precedence, starting over 150 years ago, for having Lady Liberty represented as someone other than a White woman. Having a Black woman as Lady Liberty is really nothing new, nor so shocking.
