The Mint said it is issuing the coins to "reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States."

WASHINGTON (AFP).- The United States is set to issue a commemorative $100 gold coin that depicts Lady Liberty -- a national symbol generally portrayed as a white woman -- as an African American for the first time. The 24-karat gold piece will be released in honor of the United States Mint's 225th anniversary, one of a series of coins that will feature a racially diverse array of Lady Liberties. The coins will "depict an allegorical Liberty in a variety of contemporary forms -- including designs representing Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Indian-Americans among others," the Mint said in a statement released Thursday. The Mint said it is issuing the coins to "reflect the cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States." The new coin will be released on April 6 featuring the bust of a distinctly African-American Liberty, with a crown of gold stars. Underneath appear the words "In God we trust" and the dates 2017 and 1792, the year Congress created the Mint.

Black Super Heroes have been advocated for, created, and published by Prof. Onli since the 1970s.  The first being "NOG: The Protector of the Universe". The Nubian of Greatness!". Which he created while living and working in Paris France.  NOG is the most powerful Black Super Hero ever created.

Brilliantly he coined the term, "The Black Age of Comics" to celebrate creators and concepts derived from the Black, African, Urban and Indie experience.
