2014 Civil Rights Act of 1964 Silver Dollar

Description

2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This law greatly expanded civil rights protections, outlawed racial discrimination and segregation, and served as a model for subsequent anti-discrimination laws. Celebrate this ground-breaking law and its impact on our Nation with the 2014 Civil Rights Act of 1964 Silver Dollar.

The obverse (heads side) design features three people holding hands at a civil rights march. The man holds a sign that reads WE SHALL OVERCOME. The design is symbolic of all marches that helped galvanize the civil rights movement. Additional inscriptions are LIBERTY, 2014 and IN GOD WE TRUST.

The reverse (tails) design features three flames intertwined to symbolize freedom of education, freedom to vote, and the freedom to control one’s own destiny. The design was inspired by Martin Luther King Jr., who said: “They get the fire hose. They fail to realize that water can only put out physical fire. But water can never drown the fire of freedom.” Inscriptions are CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964, SIGNED INTO LAW JULY 2, 1964, E PLURIBUS UNUM, ONE DOLLAR and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

The reverse of this coin is of enhanced proof quality with multiple finishes. The flame is mirror polished; the field under the flame incorporates a combination of light polishing and a light laser frost texture; the lettering and torch have a heavy laser frost texture; and the circular ring with text has an accenting polish. This is the first time the United States Mint has used this combination of finishes.

Program

Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Kennedy

civilrights.jpgCivil Rights Act of 1964

The bill was called for by President John F. Kennedy in his civil rights speech of June 11, 1963, in which he asked for legislation "giving all Americans the right to be served in facilities which are open to the public—hotels, restaurants, theaters, retail stores, and similar establishments", as well as "greater protection for the right to vote". Kennedy delivered this speech following a series of protests from the African-American community, the most concurrent being the Birmingham campaign which concluded in May 1963.

Emulating the Civil Rights Act of 1875, Kennedy's civil rights bill included provisions to ban discrimination in public accommodations, and to enable the U.S. Attorney General to join in lawsuits against state governments which operated segregated school systems, among other provisions. However, it did not include a number of provisions deemed essential by civil rights leaders including protection against police brutality, ending discrimination in private employment, or granting the Justice Department power to initiate desegregation or job discrimination lawsuits.
