Product Description

2021 American Innovation - NH P $1 MS 64

The American Innovation $1 Coin representing New Hampshire recognizes the invention of the first home video game console by Ralph Baer.

In 1966, Ralph Baer began to investigate how to play games on a television. He and his team developed the “Brown Box,” a prototype for the first multi-player, multi-program video game system. This paved the way for all video game systems that followed. Baer is known today as "The Father of Video Games."

The reverse (tails) design depicts Ralph Baer’s brown box game “Handball” on the right side of the coin. The left side features “New Hampshire” and “Player 1” on an incused background. The inscriptions “In-Home Video Game System” and “Ralph Baer” encircle the coin in a text that is meant to pay homage to Baer’s Odyssey game. The additional inscription is "United States of America." The design is also symbolic of an arcade token.

The obverse (heads) design features a dramatic representation of the Statue of Liberty in profile with the inscriptions “In God We Trust” and “$1.”
