American Innovation $1 Coin Products Honoring New Hampshire Available Beginning June 15
2021, June 15

US Mint - WASHINGTON - The United States Mint (Mint) will accept orders for products containing American Innovation $1 Coins honoring New Hampshire starting on June 15 at noon EDT. Coins in these products are uncirculated quality from the Mint's Philadelphia and Denver facilities. Product options and pricing are below.



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.



New Hampshire's $1 Coin recognizes Ralph Baer's invention of the first home video game console. The coin's reverse depicts Baer's brown box game "Handball" on the right side of the coin, with the inscription "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." The left side of the coin features the inscriptions "NEW HAMPSHIRE" and "PLAYER 1" on an incused background. "IN HOME VIDEO GAME SYSTEM" and "RALPH BAER" encircle the outside of the coin in a text that is meant to pay homage to Ralph Baer's Odyssey game. The design is also symbolic of an arcade token.

The obverse (heads) of American Innovation $1 Coins features a dramatic representation of the Statue of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "$1." The obverse also includes a privy mark of a stylized gear, representing industry and innovation.

The year of minting or issuance, the mint mark, and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" are incused on the edge of the coin.

I was sorta hoping they would use a better design, being from New England and all... Not that PONG is a very "photogenic" game!

I did not like this design at first, but for some reason it has begun to impress me. I think it is the font.

I will see it in the proof set this fall.

It would be super gimmicky, but MAN it needs some sort of sound effect to make the packaging complete...

An embedded sound chip just like the ones used in greeting cards.

Baby dollars might have enough thickness to pull this off.

Well, I was thinking about making sure the packaged does not have an unsightly bulge from the audio device (like cards do), but if you want them in the coin... I think we can swing it.

Hope I'm in the right place -- I normally collect proofs and reverse proofs of mostly all coins. I saw the Innovation Dollars and decided to go with the Ps and Ds in addition to the Proofs and Reverse Proofs. Then I started seeing all of this Position A and Position B stuff -- I started buying the coins from the Mint by the rolls so I could make sure I'd get an A and B of each even though I know it's random ... but so far so good. I print my own pages for the CAPS albums and get the Air-Tites -- geez, it's getting expensive. Now I'm thinking "why" and that I should just go back to the proofs and RPs. Anyone think it's worth it to go all out for these, or just the shiny proofs/RPs? Not looking to make money but only to have a complete collection. I suppose I could get the As and Bs on eBay, but then I'm not sure I'd be getting the best pick. Thanks for any thoughts on this --

Same, especially when you cannot see the edge in a Dansco album.

Definitely collect the proofs and Inca. I have the same strategy of buying rolls to get the best coins, but I don't bother with the position A & B stuff.
