The United States Mint American Innovation $1 Coin Program is a multi-year series honoring innovation and innovators with $1 coins from each State, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Northern Mariana Islands.

The American Innovation $1 Coin representing New Hampshire recognizes the invention of the first home video game console by Ralph Baer. In 1966, Baer began investigating how to play games on a television. He and his team developed the “Brown Box,” a prototype for the first multi-player, multi-program video game system, which paved the way for all video game systems that followed. Baer is recognized as “The Father of Video Games.”

The reverse (tails) design depicts Ralph Baer’s brown box game “Handball” on the right side of the coin. The left side features “NEW HAMPSHIRE” and “PLAYER 1” on an incused background. The inscriptions “IN-HOME VIDEO GAME SYSTEM” and “RALPH BAER” encircle the coin in a text that is meant to pay homage to Baer’s Odyssey game.

The edge-incused inscriptions are “2021,” mint mark, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
