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 Virginia recognizes the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. Opened in 1964, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel connects Southeastern Virginia to the entire Delmarva Peninsula.
Spanning more than 17 miles, the bridge tunnel complex consists of 12 miles of low-level trestle, two one-mile-long tunnels, two bridges, two miles of causeway, and four man-made islands. The unique structure is considered the world’s largest bridge-tunnel complex and was designated one of seven engineering wonders of the modern world.
The reverse (tails) design depicts a view of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel as a cross section cut away, illustrating the ingenuity involved in constructing it. Inscriptions are “United States of America” and “Virginia.”
The edge-incused inscriptions are “2021,” mint mark, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
