Designs for 2024 Harriet Tubman Commemorative Coins – $5 Gold Coin, Silver Dollar and Clad Half Dollar

Gibson will be joined by distinguished guests, including Robert Portman, the former U.S. Senator from Ohio; John Katko, the former U.S. representative from New York; Karen Hill, President and CEO of the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in Auburn, New York; Woodrow Keown, President and Chief Operating Officer of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati; Bishop Dennis Proctor, Presiding Prelate of the North Eastern Episcopal District of the A.M.E. Zion Church; and Daon Jones, Chief Communications Officer at Procter & Gamble.

In accordance with Public Law 117-163, known as the Harriet Tubman Bicentennial Commemorative Coin Act, the commemorative coins celebrate the 200th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s birth. The act grants authority to the U.S. Mint to produce and sell $5 gold coins, silver dollars, and half dollar clad coins.

Designs featured on the commemorative coins pay tribute to three significant periods in Harriet Tubman’s life and work. The silver dollar designs are a representation of her role as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, the half dollar clad coins symbolize her contributions during the Civil War, and the $5 gold coin serves as a tribute to her life after the Civil War and during her later years.

When sold, and as directed by Public Law 117-163, each coin will include surcharges of $35 for the $5 gold coin, $10 for the silver dollar, and $5 for the clad half dollar. These surcharges will be directed towards supporting the missions of two important institutions: the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the Harriet Tubman Home, Inc., in Auburn, New York.

The U.S. Mint will commence the sale of the coins on Jan. 4, 2024, at noon ET, through catalog.usmint.gov.

I’m looking forward to a normal year with commemoratives. 2023 was like the year without a Santa Claus.


Speaking of Harriet Tubman designs and then some… hahaha Why or what makes the US Mint design team so “Hands On”, literally and figuratively? Alright, here we go, “All Hands on Deck”! As best I can tell, via research, these coins have a “handsy” profile as part of the design on US Mint Coins and Medals. There may be more or some that I missed, however, here’s what I found. 28 listed and then the additional Presidential Ag Medals containing or w/the Peace Medal Reverse. (Peace pipes/shaking hands) 1986 Commemorative Statue of Liberty Rev Ag $1 (Hand holding torch) 1988… Read more »


Allow me to give you a hand. I’ve got to hand it to you, that’s a pretty thorough list. Thanks for handing over the information.


Glad that you appreciated the handsome amount of time, effort, and energy, I spent compiling, Reb!

Cali y’all got too much time on your hands But u might be onto something….


What can I say Frankie, other than I like to cook and sometimes feel like, “the Renegade, that had it made,
retrieved for a bounty”! “Too much thyme, on my hands”! LOL

Seth Riesling


That’s a lot of “hand jobs”! Lol.



True that Seth! Thanks for putting your $.02 cents, ‘er “hand” into the proverbial cookie jar!


2024 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set update. “Beginning in 2024, the Limited Edition Silver Proof Set will be included in the Mint’s Product Subscription Program.” My question(s) relate to the fact that, as of now(2023) once they go on sale(Nov 28), there is a HHL of 1. So… Will the US Mint wait as long as humanly possible to populate the 2024 LESPS page (Fall) with important vital statistics, such as Mintage Limit, Product lLimit; HHL price, as well as anything else important to the collector/customer? Would they bother to have a Subscription with a HHL of 1? I’m thinking… Read more »


“all coins have been issued, in the exact format, content , finish, which is and has been done each year of issue; available for less money, if purchased separately”

Exactly the reason I’ve never ordered this “product”.


I know, why? Unless someone missed out on a previously issued product. Last time, if my memory serves me, was in 2021. That disaster. Fortunately for me, I only missed out on the Type 1, 2021 W ASE. Oh well, c’est la vie.


Oops, I mean the Type 1, 2021 W Proof ASE. My bad.


The 1993 Bill of Rights half dollar as 90% silver NOT clad.


Thank you Carl for giving me a hand sorting this out and furthering my investigation. I errantly believed what was on the US Mint Website, while researching. How about you write the US Mint and right this wrong so you are NOT faced with having to correct other coin’ees. Here is the actual wording used on the images provided on the linked US Mint page. Thanks again for pointing out, that, which was not obvious! Cheers! Here is the exact wording used on the image. “1993 Bill of Rights Commemorative CLAD Half Dollar Proof Obverse” & says the same for… Read more »

Dazed and Coinfused

It’s Tricky to rock a rhyme, to rock a rhyme that’s right on time
It’s Tricky… it’s Tricky (Tricky) Tricky (Tricky)

It’s Tricky… Tr-tr-tr-tricky (Tricky) Trrrrrrrrrrricky


Ah, RUN DMC … gone too soon. Speaking of gone too soon … how about the Prestige Set? That’s where I got the 1993 Bill of Rights silver half dollar. Which, in turn, leads to another question. How many different silver modern (since 1982) commemorative half dollars have been minted?


Major D? You were always good with these types of questions?
