The rotated orientation enables the depiction of the TV screen showing the early video game ("Handball") to be in the proper orientation (as seen on a TV screen) when the coin is flipped between obverse and reverse in the normal way.

I actually like it. Much more than I expected, but I have generally like the Innovation dollars. I just don't like dead presidents on coins.
