The San Francisco Mint Proof is always one of the more sought after coins released each year, regardless of the series. The reasoning is obvious: the San Francisco Proof edition were struck just for collectors and as such are stunning presentation pieces designed to be the crown-jewel of any collection. None will be more sought after than this inaugural Proof Innovation dollar from 2018, the first of its kind in both the series and in U.S. Mint history! Each coin is still in the original government packaging from the United States Mint.
This is part of a new golden dollar collection will honor American Inventions and Ingenuity with one coin for each state/Territory from the Denver, Philadelphia, and San Francisco Mints. A total of 56 issues ( 168 coins total) with the P/D in UNC and the S-Mint in Proof will be issued. The series will run from 2018 to 2032 (counting the inaugural release in 2018). Four States will be released per year & the reverse designs will be unique for each state.
This is the first time in U.S. Mint history they have launched an ‘Inaugural’ coin for a new collectible coin series, so 57 coins … making it a Must Have (a First is always first!)
This coin’s obverse features the Statue of Liberty. The reverse features the Series Name, along with a unique ‘gear’ design covering the upper left portion of the coin above a line stating “ The United States of America” ... also included is George Washington’s Signature from the first U.S. Patent ever issued in the United States of America on July, 31st 1790.
