Released as a part of the U.S. Mint’s American Innovation™ $1 Coin Program, the dollar recognizes the Georgia’s historic Trustee’s Garden which was established in 1734 by James Edward Oglethorpe, who also founded the Colony of Georgia. Located in Savannah, it was the first agricultural experimental garden in America.

The $1 coin’s reverse (tails side) shows a hand planting seeds in soil represented by the text "TRUSTEES’ GARDEN." The fruits of that labor are depicted, as described by the Mint, with "an orange tree seedling, sassafras, grapes, white mulberry, flax, peaches, olive, and a young shoot too small to be identified."
