Current Design

The 2011 coin features the third reverse (tails side) design in the six-year "Preamble Series" program introduced in 2009.  The program commemorates the core concepts of American democracy by featuring the six principles of the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution.  The 2011 coin design is emblematic of the principle To Insure Domestic Tranquility, the third of six principles of American democracy found in the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution.  It features the harvest goddess emerging from a field of wheat symbolizing the vastness of our Nation and its wide diversity of views.  Her bearing a stalk of wheat in her left hand, while extending her right hand to a landing dove, represents the fulfillment of tranquility in our Nation's cohesive yet free society.

The reverse designs of the coins in the series are inspired by narratives prepared by the Chief Justice of the United States at the request of the United States Mint. The other five design themes are: "To Form a More Perfect Union" (released in 2009); "To Insure Domestic Tranquility" (2011); "To Provide for the Common Defence" (2012); "To Promote the General Welfare" (2013); and "To Secure the Blessings of Liberty to Ourselves and our Posterity" (2014).
