I found out that a prototype coin was created for Bessie Coleman. This coin was done by Daniel Carr and submitted to the Dollar Coin Advisory Committee consideration. This gifted designer choose Bessie Coleman to be on a proposed coin.”But who is Bessie Coleman?” I asked myself.
Well before the song came out called, “I believe I can fly” Bessie Coleman not only dreamed about becoming a woman pilot but she did it! She was the first African American Pilot.
So take a few minutes to read a short account about Bessie Coleman’s life.
Expect to see a couple of posts about the coin and designer.
