To mark the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the U.S. Mint has issued a commemorative coin in honor of those who led the movement towards desegregation and racial equality during the mid '60s. The head of the coin depicts three marchers, with one holding a sign that says "we shall overcome." The coin is available in proof and uncirculated silver dollars; surcharges are paid to the United Negro College Fund. The video talks more about this unique coin.
