Discover Ghana’s dramatic Titans of American Innovation series or update your existing collection with this 2021 bi-colored Uncirculated coin struck in 15 grams of titanium! The sixth issue in the series honors George Washington Carver – who was born a slave yet became one of the most prominent scientists and inventors of his time.

A teacher at the Tuskegee Institute, Carver helped blacks – many with backgrounds similar to his own – find economic stability. He also revolutionized American agriculture by promoting alternative crops and developing methods to prevent soil depletion, and developed more than 100 products using peanuts – including dyes, plastics and gasoline!
