Sales near for American Innovation dollar for Pennsylvania
- Published: Sep 30, 2019, 8 AM
Collectors interested in obtaining bags and rolls of Uncirculated circulation-quality 2019 American Innovation Pennsylvania dollars can do so by placing orders beginning at noon Eastern Time Oct. 24 with the United States Mint.
The coins are from production at both the Denver and Philadelphia Mints.
Coins from either production facility can be ordered for $32.95 per paper-wrapped 25-coin roll, or $111.95 per 100-coin Mint-sewn canvas bag.
The Pennsylvania dollar is the second of four to be issued in 2019 and the second of 56 to be issued through the American Innovation $1 Coin program over a 14-year period.
No new dollar coins are officially placed into general circulation. The last dollar coins placed into circulation were the 2011 James A. Garfield dollars in the Presidential dollar program.
In December 2011, then Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner suspended release into circulation of any additional Presidential dollars because of the more than 1.3 billion dollar coins already in Federal Reserve inventory.
The reverse of the Pennsylvania dollar “depicts an artist’s conception of the poliovirus at three different levels of magnification along with the silhouette of a period microscope, representing the extensive research conducted to develop a cure for polio,” according to the Mint.
The reverse was designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program Artist Richard Masters.
