The coin, in the form of bags and rolls, will be on sale starting at Noon Eastern on February 23rd.
From 2019 through to 2032, four new coins in the series will be release each year. According to the Mint, these coins will be “celebrating innovations and innovators” from each of the fifty states, the District of Columbia and five United States Territories: Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Island, and the Northern Mariana Islands. The Obverse for all of these coins will depict the Statue of Liberty. The Reverse of each coin will change based on the state or territory it is released for and the innovation it is celebrating.

The United States Mint will offer four different products for the new coin:

- 100-Coin Bag (Philadelphia) – $117.50
