Illinois is the 11th US state to legalize the sale of recreational marijuana within its jurisdiction. The state follows the lead of Colorado and Washington, the first two states to legalize marijuana and cannabis products at the ballot box in 2012. However, Illinois made its changes with the passage of the Illinois Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act in the state legislature. The state is just the second in the nation, behind Vermont, to push legislation through state government rather than making the change at the ballot box.
On the obverse side of each 1 oz Proof Legalized Collection Illinois Silver Round is the state seal of Illinois. Like other releases in this series, the state seal has been modified to include cannabis design elements in a nod to the start of legal cannabis sales in the state starting January 1, 2020.
The reverse face of Proof Legalized Collection Illinois Silver Rounds includes a common design element found on all other releases in the collection. Here, a cannabis leaf features in the center with its leaf hands cuffed together. This is a symbol of the federal government’s resistance to altering US national law regarding cannabis use.
Proof silver rounds such as these from the Blockchain Mint have frosted design elements overlaying mirrored backgrounds for visual contrast.
