The 56-coin American Innovation $1 Coin Program started in 2018. The program mandates that the Mint will issue four noncirculating dollar coins annually for 14 years.

One coin will be issued for each of the 50 states in the order in which each state ratified the U.S. Constitution or entered the Union. Following the states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories in order, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the United States Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands all would also present an innovator from their area.

The American Innovation $1 Coin representing Alabama recognizes the invention of the Saturn V rocket.


Depicts the Statue of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “$1.” In 2019, a privy mark was added under "WE TRUST".

The Statue of Liberty, a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York City, in the United States. The Statue is the work of sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, who enlisted the assistance of engineer Alexandre Gustave Eiffel, designer of the Eiffel Tower.

The Statue of Liberty was completed in 1884 in France and shipped to the United States in June 1885, having been disassembled into 350 individual pieces that were packed in over 200 crates for the transatlantic voyage. In four months’ time, it was re-assembled in New York Harbor, standing just over 151 feet from the top of the statue’s base to the tip of the torch her right hand holds high above the waters of New York Harbor.

Originally intended as a gift to celebrate the American Centennial in 1876, the Statue of Liberty was given to the United States as a symbol of the friendship forged between the new American government and the government of France during the American Revolutionary War.

Depicts the power and force of the Saturn V rocket lifting off with the Moon in the background.

The Saturn V, a legendary American super heavy-lift launch vehicle, stands as a symbol of NASA's pioneering spirit during the Apollo era. Developed under the Apollo program, this human-rated rocket with its three stages, powered by liquid fuel, carried the hopes and dreams of a generation eager to explore the lunar surface. From 1967 to 1973, the Saturn V soared to the heavens, embarking on nine crewed missions to the Moon and delivering Skylab, America's first space station, into orbit.

As of 2024, the Saturn V stands unrivaled, remaining the sole launch vehicle to have transported humans beyond low Earth orbit. Its awe-inspiring payload capacity to low Earth orbit, a staggering 311,152 pounds, including essential unburned propellant for lunar missions, solidifies its place in history. Crafted under the visionary leadership of Wernher von Braun at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and constructed by a consortium of leading contractors, including Boeing, North American Aviation, Douglas Aircraft Company, and IBM, the Saturn V epitomizes the culmination of human ingenuity and ambition.

With fifteen flight-ready vehicles produced, thirteen of which majestically ascended from Kennedy Space Center, the Saturn V carried twenty-four intrepid astronauts on their extraordinary journeys to the Moon, marking a golden chapter in the annals of space exploration from the groundbreaking Apollo 8 mission in December 1968 to the final lunar landing of Apollo 17 in December 1972.
