Full Description

On July 2, 1964, a new act was signed into law forbidding racial discrimination and expanding civil rights protections for all Americans, regardless of race, gender, religion or nationality. The U.S. still had a long way to go on the path to equality, but this Civil Rights Act of 1964 helped America move along that path more quickly and surely. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this historic legislation, the United States issued this 2014 Civil Rights Act of 194 Silver Dollar Coin. Offered here in proof quality and circulated condition, this coin is a symbol of America’s fight for freedom for all.

Obverse

The front of the coin features three people holding hands and marching in protest of injustice. One of the marchers carries a sign that says ‘We Shall Overcome,’ referring to a song that was often used during civil rights protests in the 1960s. Also on the obverse are the word ‘Liberty,’ the date ‘2014,’ and the motto ‘In God We Trust.’

Reverse

The back features a brilliant design of three intertwining flames, each representing a different civil right guaranteed by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These rights are freedom of education, freedom to vote, and freedom to control one’s own destiny. A textured ring of print circles the flame image, with the words ‘Civil Rights Act of 1964’ and ‘United States of America.’ To the right of the flame are the words ‘Signed into Law July 2, 1964,’ while to the left are the motto ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ the denomination of ‘One Dollar,’ and the mintmark ‘P.’
