Why order this 2-Piece 2020-P Commemorative Women's Suffrage 100th Anniversary Silver Dollar and Medal Set?
1920 was one of the most significant years in American history because of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The amendment granted women the right to vote and, in doing so, made the promise of America available to all. The fight for rights for women continues to this day, but the ratification was a turning point in the movement. The US Mint marks the 100th anniversary of the amendment with this two piece set. Just 10,000 of these sets were issued. Both coins were struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 26.73 g of .999 fine silver, but only the coin has a mint mark.
Moving Women's Suffrage Designs
The dollar features designs by Christina Hess that were sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. On the obverse are three women. Each one wears a hat that represents a different decade of the women's suffrage movement. The last of the three has a button that bears an inscription of the year of ratification, "1920." "LIBERTY" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" are inscribed along the rim, while the coin's face value, "$1," is noted in the upper left. "2020" drops into a ballot box on the reverse. The box is decorated in an art deco style typical of the era in which ratification was passed. Inscriptions on the box include the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "VOTES FOR WOMEN."
The medal's obverse features women's hands holding up a foundation stone. A young girl's hand reaches up to join them. "WOMEN"S SUFFRAGE" is inscribed on the stone. The reverse features the words of the 19th Amendment against a backdrop of the American flag. The date, "1920," is inscribed below the text of the amendment.
