Between 2012 and 2018, voters across the United States gave their approval to state governments to begin the decriminalization of recreational cannabis use. Colorado voters were the first to take this step, doing so in 2012. Alaska and Oregon were the next states to do so, with ballot measures passing in 2014.

The move to legalize recreational cannabis use in Oregon is estimated to have a significant financial impact on the state. Early estimates projected that the legalization of cannabis and taxation of its sales could generate anywhere from $17 million to $40 million each year for the state. After two failed ballot measures previously, Measure 91 was resoundingly approved by voters in the state.
All of the 1 oz Copper Legalized Collection Oregon Rounds available here come in brand-new condition. The copper rounds are housed inside of plastic flips, acrylic tubes of 20, or boxes of 500 rounds. The box holds a total of 25 tubes of 20 copper rounds each.
The obverse of Copper Legalized Collection Oregon Rounds comes with a depiction of the state seal. The state seal of Oregon has been modified in this release to include a hand rising up from the Earth with a cannabis leaf in its fingers. Other design elements include the heraldic eagle, an ox-driven wagon, and a banner that reads “The Return to Nature.” Voters in the state of Oregon approved Measure 91 during the 2014 Midterm Election with 56.11% of voters backing the measure compared to 43.89% hoping to block the measure.
On the reverse of 1 oz Copper Legalized Collection Rounds is a common design element for the series. As the federal government maintains its stance that recreational cannabis use is illegal, the design points out this fact with the large cannabis leaf that is handcuffed at the center of the design element. There is a large chain around the design element, with an inscription at the center that reads “End the War.”
