Why order this 2-Piece 100th Anniversary Commemorative 2020-P Women's Suffrage Silver Dollar and Medal Set?
in 1920, women earned the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. This was a seminal moment in American history, as it enfranchised the half of the population that had long been denied the right to participate in the democratic process. The US Mint marks the centennial anniversary of the Amendment with this two piece set, which consists of a silver dollar and a medal. Just 10,000 of these sets were issued. Both pieces were struck from 26.73 g of .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint, but that mint's "P" mint mark appears only on the dollar.
Powerful Women's Suffrage Designs
The coin features a pair of designs that were created by Christina Hess and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. Three women wear hats that represent different periods of the women's suffrage movement on the obverse. One of them, a cloche hat that has an art deco design, has a button that bears the date of ratification, "1920." The coin's face value, "$1," is noted in the upper left, while "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "LIBERTY" are inscribed along the rim. "2020," the coin's date and the anniversary date, drops into a ballot box like a vote on the reverse. The box is decorated in an art deco style and has three inscriptions, "VOTES FOR WOMEN," "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
On the obverse of the medal is a foundation stone. It bears the inscription "WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE." Several women's hands hold up the stone, and a girl's hand reaches up towards it. This symbolizes the generations of struggle that it took for women to get the right to vote. On the reverse, the text of the 19th Amendment is superimposed on an American flag. The ratification date, "1920," is inscribed at the bottom of this face.
