The final product to be released by the United States Mint for 2020 will go on sale later today. The Maryland American Innovation Reverse Proof Dollar coin will go on sale at Noon Eastern, 9:00 AM Pacific. The coin is 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.
For those who are in the American Innovation Dollar Enrollment Program, you should have received notification via email this morning that your order has been confirmed. As a reminder to those not in the program, sign up is free and can be cancelled at any time. Not only does the program assure you will get the enrollment coin(s) but you also get free standard shipping.
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 American Innovation 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.
