Introduced in 2018, the American Innovation $1 Coin Program is a multi-year series featuring distinctive reverse (tails) designs that pay homage to America's ingenuity and celebrate the pioneering efforts of individuals or groups from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Territories.
The Indiana American Innovation $1 Coin reverse design depicts 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."
"I am honored to announce the American Innovation $1 coin for the State of Indiana," said Ventris C. Gibson, United States Mint Director. "When I look at this design, I see the automobiles of our past and present transitioning in perfect harmony."
"Come to Indiana today and you'll find us at the epicenter of innovation," said Eric J. Holcomb, Governor of Indiana. "Thrilling industries, including life sciences, medical devices, automotive technology and deeply rooted agricultural advancements abound in our high quality of life destination for top talent. Honing their skills here at top-ranked institutions of higher education, Hoosier innovators have launched global enterprises including Eli Lilly and Company, propelling treatments like insulin with a far-reaching impact. From the early automobiles of the 1890s manufactured by Elwood Haynes in Indiana to the globally known Indianapolis 500 that welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors annually to experience the cutting edge of motorsports, completion and collaboration are keys to Indiana's economic and innovative engine."
United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Designer Ron Sanders created the reverse design, which was sculpted by United States Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill.
The obverse (heads) of all coins in this series features a dramatic representation of the Statue of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "$1." The design also includes a privy mark of a stylized gear, representing industry and innovation. AIP Designer Justin Kunz created the design, which was sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill.
Incused on the coin's edge are "2023," the mint mark, and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

I am excited to announce the ANA will once again be offering my class on early American copper coins at its annual Summer Seminar. Located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the seminar consists of two sessions. Session 1 is June 17-22. Session 2 runs June 24-29. There is a great coin show in between. My class will be session 2.
you can check out the course catalogs here:
this is a tentative class schedule for my EAC class:
its a very hands on class and we treat the schedule as a guideline. we look at a lot of coins and try to focus on the interests of the class.
Coin camp is an amazing experience and something I think everyone who loves coins should experience at least once. Classes of all kinds are offered. If EACs arent your thing you can probably find something else of interest. if you have any questions about the event feel free to send me an email.
