The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) has released the candidate design images for the Missouri 2024 American Innovation Dollar. The final design for the coin will be selected later this year. For the Missouri dollar, the focus is on the contributions of George Washington Carver and his discoveries around crop rotation.
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. You can read about the series in this Coin History article.The program will run through 2032, with four coin releases each year honoring a United States state or United States territory.
