2019-S US American Innovatation Reverse Proof Coin $1 - New Jersey (19GG)

Includes U.S. Mint Original Government Packaging & Certificate of Authenticity

The United States Mint American Innovation $1 Coin Program
is a multi-year series to honor significant American innovation and pioneering effots of individuals or groups from each of the 50 States, District of Columbia and U.S. Territories. One of the Nation's greatest strengths is its entrepreneurial spirit and the remarkable innovation and discovery it unleashes. To celebrate this innovation, each release is a beautiful proof coin with sharp relief and a mirror-like background with frosted foregrounds, giving it a special cameo effect.

New Jersey is the third to be released in the series. It features an electric lightbulb, developed by Thomas Edison and his team of researchers, who made light bulbs available to the public. Prior to Edison and his researchers, earlier light bulbs from the 1830s had very short lifespans, used too much energy, or were simply too expensive to produce. By 1879, Edison and his team had managed to produce a bulb with a filament that could last 14.5 hours, and with continued work, they managed to improve to a filament with a lifetime of 1,200 hours. This marked the beginning of commercially manufactured light bulbs, giving people easy control over light in homes and businesses, drastically changing infrastructure, business, and society.

Coin Designs
Obverse: Features a dramatic representation of the Statue of Liberty in profile with inscriptions IN GOD WE TRUST and $1. The obverse also includes a privy mark of a stylized gear, representing industry and innovation.
Reverse: Features an Edison bulb against an ornate background. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and NEW JERSEY.
The edge incused inscriptions are 2019, S and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
