About The Coin

"The U.S. Mint is authorized to strike a maximum of two commemorative coins per calendar year. Commemorative coins have documented some of America's most significant historical and cultural moments - celebrating and honoring people, places, events, and institutions. MotorCities National Heritage Area and The Henry Ford are working to promote the passage of the Model T Ford Automobile Commemorative Coin Act which would authorize the U.S. Mint to produce a commemorative coin, celebrating the centennial of the Model T.

Although commemorative coins are legal tender, they are not minted for general circulation. Each commemorative coin is produced by the U.S. Mint in a limited quantity and is only available for a limited time. The Model T Ford Automobile Commemorative Coin Act directs revenues from the sale of each coin to be made available to MotorCities National Heritage Area and The Henry Ford. All revenues will be divided equally and used to establish an endowment at each institution to fund educational programs associated with the Model T, and support the celebration and preservation of the Model T story."
