The Civil Rights Act of 1866 was a natural extension of President Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Emancipation Proclamation and other initiatives he enacted before his assassination in 1865. It was designed to protect the rights of African-Americans and former slaves, and it laid the groundwork for the civil rights movement a century later.
The Civil Rights Act was the first United States federal law to define US citizenship and affirm that all citizens are equally protected by law. To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of this landmark legislation, this phenomenal Ultra High Relief coin depicts the dramatic seated figure of Lincoln from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The Ultra High Relief and incuse image is accomplished through multiple high-pressure strikes on a double-thick Piedfort, creating a deep design that is truly three-dimensional.
The design features the seated figure of Abraham Lincoln produced in Ultra High Relief based on the statue situated in the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.Show more
The statue in the Lincoln Memorial was carved by Piccirilli Brothers under the supervision of the sculptor Daniel Chester French and took four years to complete. The statue, which was originally intended to be only 10 feet/3 metres tall finally stood at 19 feet/5.8metres tall and this amazing coin is a fitting tribute to one of the best-known Presidents of the United States.
