American Innovations Dollar Collection-Annie Jump Cannon Classifying the Stars

Expected release date is 20th Sep 2019

The American Innovations Dollar Collection is beautiful and educational, containing the Philadelphia and Denver minted dollar coins honoring this new program of American ingenuity. Both coins sit within a Lock-tite, crystal clear enclosure affixed to a full color 5x15 inch tri-fold containing information about the United States Patent process and highlighting some of America's greatest inventors.

The coin features Annie Jump Cannon, a Delaware-born internationally recognized astronomer who invented a system for classifying the stars still in use today.

The reverse design features a silhouette of Annie Jump Cannon against the night sky, with a number of stars visible. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “ANNIE JUMP CANNON,” “CLASSIFYING THE STARS,” and “DELAWARE.”

The obverse design features a dramatic representation of the Statue of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “$1.” The design also includes a privy mark of a stylized gear, representing industry and innovation.

The edge-incused inscriptions are “2019,” mint mark, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
