The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) has released images for the 2020 South Carolina American Innovation Dollar. The candidate images were released as a part of the committee’s scheduled meeting being held today in Washington, D.C.
The South Carolina American Innovation Dollar is expected to be the third coin in the series released in 2020. In total, there will be four released: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, and South Carolina. You can learn more about the entire American Innovation series in this Coin History article.
Here are the candidates for the South Carolina coin:
At to which one of these designs will be the final one, that is an unknown. It is likely that won’t be decided until mid-2020 at the earliest in a future CCAC meeting.
The new American Innovation Dollar coin came about through legislation passed in 2018 and is set to run through the year 2032. In all, there will be 57 coins released in the program with the first one released on December 14, 2018. That coin, however, was an introductory coin fundamentally to show the coin off to the public and was never released for circulation.
Keeping with the gold tone of the Native American Dollar and the Presidential Dollar series, the American Innovation Dollar will also have a smooth edge too. E PLURIBUS UNUM will be on the edge along with the year and mint mark.
The First American Innovation dollar was released in December 2018 with the second in the series set for release on September 19, 2019, representing Delaware.
