The Lady of Fortune Coin
Each individually numbered 750mL glass bottle of Gold Bar Whiskey features an iconic ‘Lady of Fortune’ solid brass coin. This replica and collector-grade coin is pressed into each unique bottle. The coin embodies true American craftsmanship and our company history.
It is also minted one-by-one at America’s oldest operating private mint. The mint’s history actually dates back to 1835 and predates the introduction of the legal tender banknote.

Gold Bar Whiskey Coin Features
Measuring 39mm in diameter, the Lady of Fortune GOLD BAR Whiskey coin may also be detached from the bottle to pass on luck and prosperity.
The Lady of Fortune stands in front of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. This mountain range is where the California Gold Rush occurred from 1848 to 1855.
The front of the coin is inspired by the world’s most renowned heroines of victory. The Lady of Fortune embodies the Californian spirit of entrepreneurship, hard work and determination.
The rocks and pickaxe on her left-side represent grit, hard work and effort.
Her right-side represents the fruits of her labor. She holds the three harvested grains of GOLD BAR Whiskey: corn, rye and barley. She also stands on a precipice of gold bars.
The back of the coin also includes the phrase “may her light reveal your fortunes path.”
Steven Noble, Artist

He not only specializes in the scratchboard medium but also woodcut, line art, pen and ink and engraving artistic styles as well.
Scratchboard is probably the most difficult artistic mediums to master because of its intricate details.
