The final product to be released by the United States Mint for 2020 will go on sale next week. The Maryland American Innovation Reverse Proof Dollar coin will go on sale December 30 at Noon Eastern, 9:00 AM Pacific. The coin will be available exclusively on the Mint’s site and is priced at $11.50. Production of this Reverse Proof coin is limited to 50,000 and a limit of 5 coins per household will be enforced.
Like other coins in the American Innovation Dollar series, the Maryland coin carries the common Obverse (heads) of the Statue of Liberty while the Reverse will depict the Hubble Space Telescope in honor of the state’s contribution to space exploration.
Developed by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and launched on April 24, 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope is one of the largest and most versatile space telescopes. It was named in honor of American astronomer Edwin P. Hubble. It is also the first designed to be serviced in space by astronauts. Teams at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and the Space Telescope Science Institute–both located in Maryland–manage the telescope.United States Mint
The Reverse Proof is the final product set to be released for the Maryland dollar. Rolls and Bags for the coin went on sale earlier this month. Historically through the two years of the American Innovation Dollar program, the Reverse Proof coins have sold well for the Mint because of their individually unique Reverse’s as well as the finish of the coins themselves.
