The Indiana American Innovation dollar’s reverse “design features a series of vehicles that showcase Indiana innovations from yesterday and today. From top to bottom, the design includes an early style gas automobile, a representation of classic car production, and a recent model of an Indy style race car.” Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and INDIANA.
It was designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program designer Ronald D. Sanders and sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill.

The state’s 2023 American Innovation dollar is the second U.S. coin honoring Indiana with a race car theme.

The inscription CROSSROADS OF AMERICA, Indiana’s official motto, appears below the race car.
The Indianapolis 500, held Memorial Day weekend, made its debut in 1911. It has been held annually most years since, with gaps during World War I and World War II. It is part of the IndyCar series of races and is generally considered the most prestigious race in the series.
