Harriet Tubman Silver Dollar
The U.S. Mint will release the 2024 Harriet Tubman Silver Dollar as part of the Harriet Tubman Commemorative Coin Program. The program celebrates the bicentennial of Harriet Tubman’s birth. The Mint will strike $5 gold coins, $1 silver coins, and half dollar clad coins as part of the program. The designs follow the three periods of Tubmans’ life and work.
The dollar designs reflect her work as a conductor on the Underground Railroad. Over a 10-year period, Tubman personally guided about 70 people from slavery to freedom. She provided instructions to approximately 70 additional people who found their way to freedom on their own.

Commemorative Coin Surcharges
Commemorative coin programs are created by acts of Congress to honor a person, place, or event. Surcharges from the sales of these coins help fund a variety of organizations and projects that benefit the public. Commemorative coins are only available from the United States Mint for a limited time, as specified by public law.
The obverse (heads) depicts Harriet Tubman offering her hand to the viewer with an expression that challenges the viewer to seize the opportunity for freedom.
The reverse (tails) depicts silhouettes crossing a bridge created by a pair of clasped hands. In the sky, the Big Dipper constellation points to the North Star, which forms the “O” in the word “OF.”
