Though this caused some practical challenges when the coins were circulated, it remains one of the most compelling novelties in the history of American numismatics.

The word "LIBERTY" is inscribed above, and the date, "1925," is noted below. Thirteen stars connect these inscriptions on the rim.
Reverse: An eagle stands proudly perched on a fasces on the reverse. The fasces is wrapped in an olive branch. Flanking the bird are the statutory mottoes "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
