Characteristics

The obverse (heads) design of the features a child’s reaching hand, amid adult women’s hands and arms holding up a heavy weight—a kind of “foundation” of stone. Women’s suffrage was a struggle that continued across generations, with countless hands turned to the task.

The reverse (tails) design honors the Women's Suffrage Movement by juxtaposing the text of the 19th Amendment, ratified in 1920, with the flag of the United States.
