On the obverse side of 1 oz Silver Antique Legalized Collection Illinois Rounds is the common design element of the series. Here, a cannabis leaf is hand-cuffed as a symbol of federal efforts to ensure that cannabis remains classified as an illegal drug for recreational use.
The reverse face of 1 oz Antique Legalized Collection Illinois Rounds features the state seal of Illinois. As with all other releases in this series, this side of the round has the seal of Illinois with added cannabis design elements to promote the legalization of recreational cannabis use in the state.
Illinois has taken a long road to legalization for recreational cannabis. The first medical cannabis act was passed in 2013 as a pilot program designed for legally registered patients with strict controls in place on use of the substance. The medical cannabis program was expanded throughout 2018 and 2019, with recreational cannabis authorized on May 31, 2019, by the General Assembly and signed into law by Governor J.B. Pritzker on June 25, 2019.
