    3 or 6 would have been better. At least 3 doesn’t have the cowboy saddle

    They appear to be grasping at straws and stuck fast in the morass of trying to please everyone, which usually ends up pleasing no one. I can understand why some people might think that yet another allegorical Liberty or another dead political figure may seem "behind the times," but these samples really lack imagination. And where did that bucking horse come from? How does an angry frightened horse symbolize the large word "LIBERTY" above it? I've been on a bucking horse and it in no way felt liberating. In fact, buying that coin would just remind me of that horrible experience, so I want absolutely nothing to do with it. Think of the people who have actually been horribly injured by being thrown from a bucking horse! How would they react to this? Oh yes, this coin reminds me of that time I broke an arm and a leg! Take my $2,000! Whaaa hooooo!!

    I really really don't get it.

    Your right 3 and 6 aren’t to bad but in general we deserve better!

    I like the bucking horse coins design. Not sure how it can replace Lady Liberty, but overall I think its a pretty design idea for a coin. There I said it, now I will head to the woodshed. :oops::dead:

    It won't be easy, but give yourself 50 lashes, then stand in the corner for 10 min. :D

    The horse looks like a cartoon. It certainly doesn't appeal to me. With so many options, this is what they come up with ............... ????

    The hall of fame and Apollo coins were pretty good though. Maybe they do better when they have a specific theme to work with.

    There used to be an expression, "Close enough for government work," sorry if I offended any bureaucrats here, but to my recollection, the mint is a segment of our hard-working federal government. You may draw your conclusions as needed.

    The cinch buckle is on the wrong side! The buckle normally is at the end of the left side of the cinch, with the tongue on the right. No wonder it cajme off...

    They (employees) don’t get paid more if sales increase. Very little incentive to produce out-of-the-park products. The whole process should be looked at for privatization. Whoops! Hope that isn’t considered political?

    It is the HORSE experiencing Liberty by getting rid of the saddle. (got rid of the rider who was trying to tell him what to do earlier)

    The rider of that miffed horse was definitely liberated from that saddle, for sure. In the scene the poor person is probably floating in the about a foot above the coin, waiting for a nasty landing.

    I believe Commemorative coin designs are mandated by the Legislator who wrote the proposal for the coin. They usually write what they want placed on the coin and from there it goes to the US Mint where the artists then sketch the design incorporating the mandated items. (Plus those mandated by previous laws).

    I read the link that @Santinidollar posted. What that design is supposed to symbolize is total BS. If they didn't tell us what it symbolizes, would anyone on this site guess the meaning of it. Would the average American looking at it know what it meant? I very much doubt it.
    The CCAC needs to rethink this one. The US Mint artists need to go back to their drawing boards. If the US Mint had a contest for school children, they'd probably come up with better ideas.
    Sorry for the rant but just thinking the Mint would consider this design bugs the ....out of me
