A Commemorative Coin for 2009

5 posts in this topic

but it will not be the first US coin to have braille on it.


what was the first?

The 1995-D Paralympics $1 features braille on its obverse (photo attached) and is, I believe, the first United States coin to feature braille lettering. The 1996-D Paralympics $1 has the same braille inscription as well.


The Alabama state quarter is, I believe, the first circulating (i.e. struck for the primary purpose of circulation) U.S. coin to feature braille.
