Since 2012, 11 US states plus the District of Columbia have taken action to remove the stigma and penalties surrounding recreational cannabis use. Launched by voter initiatives in Colorado and Washington state in 2012, the movement has gained steam with more ballot-box approval during the 2014 midterm election, 2016 general election, and 2018 midterm election. Illinois is the 10th US state to approve recreational cannabis use. Provident Metals now features its design in the 1 oz Silver Proof Legalized Collection Illinois Round available for purchase.
With your purchase of a 1 oz Silver Proof Legalized Collection Illinois Round, the item ships inside of a sealed blistercard. This blistercard not only protects the condition and visual appeal of the silver round, it also includes the Certificate of Authenticity information. This includes the weight, purity, metal content, and serial number of the round itself.
The Illinois state seal is found on the obverse of the 1 oz Silver Proof Legalized Collection Illinois Round. As with the other issues in this series, certain design elements of the Illinois state seal have been modified to include cannabis design themes to celebrate the January 1, 2020 legalization date for recreational cannabis in the state.
A common design theme with a cannabis leaf features on the reverse of all Silver Proof Legalized Collection Illinois Rounds. Here, a cannabis leaf in the center has fists that are restrained by cuffs and a chain design around the outside that represents the efforts of the federal government to ensure that recreational cannabis remains illegal. Inscriptions include Legalized, Natures Medicine, and Hemp for Industry.
Like other states in the US, Illinois has a long history with cannabis legislation. For example, in 1931, the state was one of 29 states in the country to prohibit the use of cannabis on a recreational basis. The first effort to control medical marijuana use came with the Cannabis Control Act of 1978, but though the measure was passed in the legislature, the state government never enacted the law. Medical cannabis finally became available in 2013, and in 2019 the state legislature authorized the sale of recreational cannabis.
These 1 oz silver Proof Legalized Collection Illinois Rounds have frosted design elements that contrast with the mirrored background field.
