The US Mint are now accepting orders for products in the Harriet Tubman Commemorative Coin Program, which honours the Civil Rights activist with a series of coins.
The new coin celebrates the life of abolitionist Harriet Tubman and marks the bicentennial of her birth.
Tubman's remarkable life included escaping slavery, helping to free many other slaves, serving as a spy for the Union Army during the American Civil War, and being an activist for women's suffrage.
