Snowboarding to be featured on Vermont $1 coin – WCAX

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.
