The United States Mint will open sales of the first American Innovation Dollar of 2024 later today. The Illinois American Innovation Dollar celebrates the invention of the Steel Plow and will go on sale at Noon Eastern on the United States Mint’s website. The coin honoring Illinois is the first of four American Innovation Dollars that will be released this year.
The 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. So far, the Mint has released 22 of the planned 57 coins. Collectors can buy the coins directly from the Mint in the form of bags, rolls, and annual Proof and Reverse Proof sets.
