The Rhode Island American Innovation $1 Coin honors naval architect Nathanael Herreshoff’s famous Reliance yacht, which incorporated numerous technical innovations when it was built in 1891. The reverse design of the coin depicts the famous Reliance yacht at full speed in the waters surrounding Rhode Island. The design is bordered by a rope reminiscent of the nautical scene. The inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “RHODE ISLAND”. The design was created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) designer Dennis Friel and modeled by Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill.

The obverse (heads) of all coins in this series feature a dramatic depiction of the Statue of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “$1”. It also includes a secret sign of a stylized cog representing industry and innovation. AIP designer Justin Kunz created the design, which was created by Mint Medallic artist Phebe Hemphill.

The mintmark “2022” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM” are engraved on the edge of the coin.
