The first numismatic product of 2023 is set for release next week. The Ohio American Innovation dollar will go on sale in bags and rolls starting Monday, January 30, 2023. The Ohio American Innovation dollar is the first of four coins set for release this year and honors the Underground Railroad.
This Ohio American Innovation $1 Coin reverse (tails) design is emblematic of the Underground Railroad. It depicts two strong hands grasped together, the upper arm pulling the lower arm upward, representing the support and strength of the Underground Railroad. A chain fastened to a rustic shackle around the lower arm’s wrist snaps and fragments, alluding to the hope of freedom.United States Mint
As has been the case in previous years, the Mint will offer four products for the Ohio dollar: 25-coin rolls and 100-coin bags.
- 25-Coin Roll (Philadelphia) – $34.50
- 25-Coin Roll (Denver) – $34.50
- 100-Coin Bag (Philadelphia) – $117.50
- 100-Coin Bag (Denver) – $117.50
Production limits of the 25-coin rolls and 100-coin bags are low, and availability will be limited. Further, the Mint has limited each product to a household limit of 10 on each product. However, unlike the 2022 American Innovation dollar products, these bags and rolls are expected to be available next Monday, albeit limited, with many already claimed as part of the Mint’s subscription program for the American Innovation Dollar series. If you are subscribed to the program, you should have already received an email from the Mint to confirm your shipping & billing details.
The new American Innovation Dollar coin came about through legislation passed in 2018 and is set to run through 2032. There will be 57 coins released in the program, with the first one released on December 14, 2018. However, that coin was an introductory coin to show the coin off to the public and was never released for circulation.
