Lear Capital's Shrine of Democracy Coins: A Stately Addition to Your Investment Portfolio

With its Shrine of Democracy coin series, Lear Capital offers a unique opportunity to invest in precious metals while celebrating the enduring legacies of America's greatest leaders. The four coins in the collection pay homage to visionary presidents who helped shape the course of our nation's history.

Shrine of Democracy coins

Lear Capital is releasing the gold and silver coins to honor the values of the United States as the country approaches its 250th anniversary in 2026. Each coin in the series depicts the face of a different president — George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt — as they appear on the sculptures at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Honoring Our Nation’s Standing as an Enduring Beacon of Liberty

The Shrine of Democracy coin series offers a unique way to celebrate our nation’s great history while also enjoying the benefits of investing in the lasting value of precious metals. The name “Shrine of Democracy” comes from the title sculptor Gutzon Borglum gave to his work. Completed in 1941, the memorial features 60-foot-high busts of the four presidents carved into the southeast face of Mount Rushmore.

With attention to detail and craftsmanship, our exclusive, limited mintage coins serve as tangible reminders of the enduring principles and values that define our nation. Each coin comes in both gold and silver versions.

I was apprehensive buying bullion online so I gave Lear Capital a call. They answered all my questions and helped make the buying process easy and stress free. My coin arrived on time and was securely packaged. The coin itself is top notch, just like the service offered by the Lear Capital Team.


Commemorating Four Presidents and Four Periods of American History

Each coin in the series features the president's face with the word that Borgium originally chose each man to represent. The words refer to important periods in the history of the United States.

Birth (George Washington). President Washington, our nation’s first president, embodies the “birth” phase of America's history. As leader of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War and one of the nation’s Founding Fathers, Washington represents the birth of American independence and the establishment of democratic principles.

Growth (Thomas Jefferson). President Jefferson, our nation’s third president and main author of the Declaration of Independence, symbolizes the “growth” phase of America. Jefferson's presidency was marked by territorial expansion, including the Louisiana Purchase, which doubled the size of the nation and opened the door to westward expansion. His commitment to exploration and expansion of American territory reflects the country's growth during this period.

Preservation (Abraham Lincoln). President Lincoln, our nation’s 16th president, guided the nation through the Civil War and signed the Emancipation Proclamation that abolished slavery. Lincoln's leadership during one of the nation's most tumultuous periods made it possible to form a society that emphasizes the importance of equality, freedom, and national unity. He is forever associated with the “preservation” period of our union.

Development (Theodore Roosevelt). President Roosevelt, our nation’s 26th president, is known for his conservation efforts during the “development” period of the country at the start of the 20th century. His dedication to preserving natural resources, establishing national parks, and advocating for conservation reflects America's commitment to preserving its natural heritage and resources for future generations.

The Enduring Value of Precious Metals

While memorializing the achievements of these four remarkable leaders, the Shrine of Democracy coin series provides you the chance to own gold and silver. Both can provide a safe haven for investors against a weakening dollar.

Gold and silver also protects you against losing the value of your savings to the impact of inflation or a bear market. Precious metals have historically retained value over time under every type of political leader and approach to setting policy. Time has shown that if the value of paper currency decreases, the value of precious metals may increase, providing a safeguard for investors' purchasing power.

I bought my first coins recently. Lear Capital talked me through everything that I had questions for along with so many things I just didn't think to ask. When I received my coins I was just thrilled with the craftsmanship and the beauty of these coins. I have already referred to many friends and family and will definitely use Lear Capital for all of my coin buying needs. Thank you for putting my mind at ease.

What You Get When Purchasing Shrine of Democracy Coins

All four coins in the series will be available both as a 1.5-ounce, 0.999 fineness silver coin and a 0.25-ounce, 0.9999 fineness gold coin. The designs feature artistic representations of each president's face as sculpted on Mount Rushmore.

Minted in Europe, the coins officially come from the state of Niue, a self-governing territory of New Zealand. Because the official head of state in Niue is King Charles III, the monarch’s face is on the obverse of the coin.
