  • The United States Mint American Innovation $1 Coin Program is a
    multi-year series honoring innovation and innovators with $1 coins from
    each State, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa,
    U.S. Virgin Islands, and Northern Mariana Islands.
  • In 1966, Ralph Baer began to investigate how to play games on a
    television. He and his team developed the “Brown Box,” a prototype for
    the first multi-player, multi-program video game system. This paved the
    way for all video game systems that followed. Baer is known today as
    "The Father of Video Games."
  • The obverse design features a dramatic representation of the Statue
    of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “$1.”
  • The reverse (tails) design depicts Ralph Baer’s brown box game
    “Handball” on the right side of the coin. The left side features “NEW
    HAMPSHIRE” and “PLAYER 1” on an incused background. The inscriptions
    “IN-HOME VIDEO GAME SYSTEM” and “RALPH BAER” encircle the coin in a text
    that is meant to pay homage to Baer’s Odyssey game. The additional
    inscription is "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA." The design is also symbolic
    of an arcade token.
  • The first coin of the American Innovations Dollar coin program in 2021.
  • P - Mint is Philadelphia Mint.
  • D - Mint is Denver Mint.
