Designs were recommended by the Commission of Fine Arts and Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee.[3] The obverse features profile portraits of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Jonas Salk, as well as inscriptions of "LIBERTY" "IN GOD WE TRUST", and "2015". It was designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Paul C. Balan. The reverse was designed by U.S. Mint artist Don Everhart and depicts a baby held in a hand.
