The obverse of Legalized Collection Uruguay Copper Rounds features a large cannabis leaf in the center. Around the base of the leaf, there is a set of chains along with fists trying to break them free. This image is symbolic of the restrictions against cannabis and the ongoing fight to lift them.
On the reverse of 1 oz Legalized Collection Copper Rounds, you’ll find a portrait of Jose Mujica. The 40th president of Uruguay, Mujica notably signed the bill into law that legalized cannabis in his country. The reverse also features a range of cannabis leaves spread across the background.
Cannabis has been used recreationally and medicinally since at least 2700 BC. However, during the modern era, the use of cannabis has been heavily restricted by governments across the globe.
As such, cannabis advocates have fought tirelessly for a legal, regulated, and taxed system in which users are no longer penalized for responsible use. The Legalized Collection from Patriot Coins raises awareness for this cause with commemorative designs for those states and countries that have lifted cannabis restrictions.
