Hubble Space Telescope to feature on American Innovation $1 coin


The Hubble Space Telescope will be honored on a new golden dollar coin reflecting the innovation embodied by the orbiting observatory and the U.S. state from where it is managed on the ground.

The United States Mint on Tuesday (June 30) revealed the official design for Maryland’s entry in the American Innovation $1 coin program, highlighting the Hubble Space Telescope. The coin will be one of four golden dollars issued this year as part of an ongoing series to “pay homage to America’s ingenuity and celebrate the pioneering efforts of individuals or groups from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. territories.”
