Ralph Baer Dollar

Video game pioneer Ralph Baer is being honored with a U.S. dollar coin. The U.S. Mint recently announced a new one dollar coin program which will commemorate American Innovation. Like the 50 U.S. State Quarters, these will be issued state-by-state (as well as D.C.), and like those state quarters, probably will not circulate very much. The first four will honor innovations and/or innovators from New Hampshire, Virginia, New York, and North Carolina. And the New Hampshire coin is dedicated to Baer, often credited with being the "father of video games" for essentially inventing the video game console (though sadly not the arcade machine, which would have made the coin an even more appropriate honor). Here's word on the Baer dollar:
“The New Hampshire series of the 2021 American Innovation Coin is a fitting tribute to both Ralph Baer, the Father of Video Games, and the pioneering, innovative spirit that each Granite Stater carries with them,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “Modern technology as we know it – stretching far beyond just video games – exists thanks to the advancements first imagined and made by Ralph Baer.”
