The series was kicked off in 2018 with a single coin paying tribute to the first U.S. patent. Beginning in 2019, four one-year-only Innovation Dollars will be released each year bearing different reverses. The coins in the multi-year series will be designed and minted to honor significant American innovation and pioneering efforts of individuals or groups in each of the 50 States, District of Columbia, and U.S. territories. It will conclude in 2032.
