The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for products containing American Innovation™ $1 Coins honoring Georgia on December 19 at noon EST. The Uncirculated coins are produced at the Mint’s Philadelphia and Denver facilities. Available product options are as follows:
The Georgia American Innovation $1 Coin is the fourth and final coin in this series for 2019. Its reverse design recognizes the Trustees’ Garden, established in the 1730s. It was the first agricultural experimental garden in America. The design depicts a hand planting seeds in the inscription “TRUSTEES’ GARDEN”, from which grows several species representing the variety of plants grown in the garden: an orange tree seedling, sassafras, grapes, white mulberry, flax, peaches, olive, and a young shoot too small to be identified. Additional inscriptions are “GEORGIA” and “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”.
The obverse features a dramatic representation of the Statue of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “$1”. The obverse also includes a privy mark of a stylized gear, representing industry and innovation. “2019”, the mint mark, and the inscription “E PLURIBUS UNUM” are incused on the edge of the coin.
