Why purchase this 2007-P Little Rock School Desegregation Silver Dollar ?
The landmark Supreme Court case Brown vs. Board of Education was supposed to have settled the issue of segregation in public education, as the Court ruled that the policy was unconstitutional. Just three years later, though, desegregation was put to the test when nine African-American students enrolled in Little Rock Central High School. Known as the Little Rock Nine, the group were initially stopped from entering the school by Gov. Orval Faubus, but President Roosevelt stepped in to ensure that they could enter. This coin marked 50 years since this pivotal moment in American history.
Obverse: Charles Vickers sculped a design by Richard Masters for the obverse. The design shows the feet of the Little Rock Nine as they are escorted into school by an armed soldier. Nine stars just above the image represent the Little Rock Nine. Inscriptions on this face include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "DESEGREGATION IN EDUCATION," and "2007."
Reverse: Don Everhart's reverse design features Little Rock Central High School as it appeared in 1957. Arching over the image are the inscriptions "ONE DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The school's name, "LITTLE ROCK CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL," is inscribed just below the building, and "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" spread throughout the bottom portion of the rim.
