Women’s History Month is celebrated every March to highlight the
contributions of women to American history and contemporary society.
The United States Mint has honored these contributions with an array
of products over the years. They include the First Spouse Proof and
Uncirculated half-ounce .999 fine gold coins and 2014 Civil Rights Act
of 1964 silver dollar — a commemorative coin honoring the many civil
rights barriers that were broken down, including various rights for women.
The U.S. Mint is helping to celebrate Women’s History Month by
promoting additional numismatic products featuring women. These
include the 3-inch and 1.5-inch bronze duplicates of the Daw Aung San
Suu Kyi congressional gold medal recognizing the Burmese opposition
leader and human rights activist’s courageous and unwavering
commitment to peace, nonviolence, human rights, and democracy — and
the 3-inch and 1.5-inch bronze duplicates of the Women Airforce
Service Pilots congressional gold medals honoring the recipients’
pioneering military service.
