BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) – A coin program that shows off state innovation will feature snowboarding for Vermont.
These are $1 coins that feature each of the 50 states, Washington, D.C., and five U.S. territories.
In a tweet, Gov. Phil Scott says he’s proud to have snowboarding representing Vermont in the American Innovation $1 Coin Program.
“Vermont is the birthplace of modern snowboarding, and this coin represents Vermont’s many contributions to the sport,” said Scott, R-Vermont.
The coin will show a young female snowboarder in the air performing a trick called a “melon grab.”
Vermont’s coin will be introduced next year.
