Commemorates the 120th anniversary of the American Pharmaceutical Association and pays tribute to more than 100,000 druggists. U.S. #1473 pictures a mortar and pestle, Bowl of Hygieia, and 19th century medicine bottles.
 
Hygieia was the Greek goddess of health. Hygieia holding a patera (medicine bowl) with a snake coiling around her and about to eat from the bowl has come to symbolize pharmacy. The snake represents the patient and its choice of whether or not to take the medicine to help itself. The American Pharmacists Association has adopted the Bowl of Hygieia as its symbol.
