For those who missed out on buying any of the coins in the American Innovation 2020 series so far, the Mint has you covered. On Oct. 8 at noon EST, the Mint is releasing the American Innovation 2020 $1 Coin Proof Set. The set features four coins celebrating and honoring significant American innovation and pioneering efforts of individuals or groups in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, and South Carolina.
The coins have sharp relief and mirror-like backgrounds with frosted foregrounds, giving them a cameo effect. Each coin weighs 8.1 grams, has a diameter of 1.043 inches and a lettered edge. The coins are produced at the San Francisco Mint, and each set comes with a certificate of authenticity. The cost is $24 and there is no mintage, product, or household order limit at the time of this writing.
These sets can be purchased online at catalog.usmint.gov. Phone ordering is currently unavailable due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
