Ex: Garrett. The obverse depicts a bust of Liberty facing left with the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above and the date below. Liberty wears a diadem inscribed with the word LIBERTY and ornamented with six stars. The weight 16.72 GRAMS, the standard of the metal 900 FINE, and the word UBIQUE are centered on the reverse. Around the periphery is the U.S. denomination DOLLARS 10 and the following international equivalents: STERLING (Pound) 2.1.1; MARKEN 41.99; KRONEN 37.31; GULDEN 20.73; and FRANCS 51.81. According to the recent Judd revision, the Latin ubique translates as "ubiquitous, or existing everywhere." Struck in copper with a reeded edge. This pattern was part of an effort to create a gold coin convenient for European trade. Mint Director Henry Linderman apparently approved of Dana Bickford's concept, but Congress failed to pass the appropriate legislation.
