Four uniquely finished dollars celebrating ingenuity and invention from the states of New Hampshire, Virginia, New York and North Carolina appear together in a United States Mint product which launches today at noon EDT.
The U.S. Mint’s 2021 American Innovation $1 Coin Reverse Proof Set ™ presents the four dollars within a single protective lens that offers views of both coin sides.
In past years, reverse proof Innovation dollars sold individually — no set was offered.
About the Innovation Program
The Mint’s American Innovation™ $1 Coin Program debuted in 2018 with a single dollar and has followed with four additional strikes every year since. Four more will appear annually through 2032 when innovation associated with each state, the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories have been showcased.
About the Set
The reverse proof set of 2021 American Innovation dollars includes the following four coins struck at the U.S. Mint’s facility in San Francisco:
- New Hampshire – the first home video game console by created by Ralph Baer
- Virginia – the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel
- New York – the 363-mile-long Erie Canal
- North Carolina – the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the first public institution of higher learning in the United States
Each is minted with a reverse proof finish, featuring mirrored devices and frosted backgrounds — opposite that of the standard proof finish. The regular proof set of 2021 Innovation dollars launched last month and 56,267 have sold through Oct. 31.
