Women’s Suffrage Centennial Silver Dollar
In partnership with the Commission and the Smithsonian Institution, the U.S. Mint released the 2020 Women’s Suffrage Centennial Silver Dollar on August 18, 2020. The Dollar was authorized by Public Law 116-71, and surcharges of $10 per coin sold were authorized to be paid to the Smithsonian Institution’s American Women’s History Initiative for research and the creation of diverse exhibits and programs that highlight the history and impact of women in the United States. Artistic Infusion Program artist Christina Hess designed both the obverse (heads) and reverse (tails) of the coin, which were sculpted by U.S. Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill. The legislation authorizes the Mint to strike and issue up to 400,000 $1 silver coins. The Mint sold over 43,000 of these coins, either individually or as part of the set, by November 2020.
