Full Description

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was landmark legislation that recognized the rights of all people, regardless of race, religion, nationality or gender, to live freely and equally. On the 50th anniversary of the date that act was signed into law, the U.S. Mint issued this commemorative silver dollar to pay tribute to the civil rights activists, protesters and all who worked so hard to achieve that goal. Offered here as a proof quality coin in uncirculated condition, this coin is as valuable for its significance as for the intrinsic worth of the silver it contains.

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.’
