2010 Native American Dollar Haudenosaunee

The design for the upcoming 2010 Native American Dollar was recently released by the US Mint. The Native American Dollar series began last year to commemorate the accomplishments and contributions of Native Americans. The 2009 design featured the Three Sisters method of planting.

Native American DollarThe 2010 design will feature a Hiawatha Belt with five arrows bound together. This represents the creation of the Haudenosaunee, better known at the Iroquois Confederacy. The symbols on the belt and the arrows represent the five nations: Onondaga, Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, and Seneca.

The reverse carries the inscriptions “United States of America”, “$1”, “Haudenosaunee”, and “Great Law of Peace”. The reverse was designed by Thomas Cleveland. The obverse of hte coin will continue to feature the portrait of Sacagawea and child, designed by Glenna Goodacre.

The US Mint expects that the first 2010 Native American Dollars will be available in January 2010.

I like the design, but I think it would be better if ‘One Dollar’ was spelled out, like it is on our other denomination coins. The $1 makes it look less authentic.

The haudenosaunee gold coins don’t have the year of when they were made so its hard to find the value on the future.
Thanks for your help.

The year of the coin is included on the edge of the coin. Edge lettering includes the date, mint mark, “E Pluribus Unum” and thirteen stars.

I quote from above “The year of the coin is included on the edge of the coin. Edge lettering includes the date, mint mark, “E Pluribus Unum” and thirteen stars.”
Even with a magnifier it is almost impossible to read and with any circulation at all the markings will be orn away….not the best choice in design!!!! Too bad what a waste

These Haudenosaunee coins are missing ‘In GOD we trust’ entirely. Other recent $1 coins feature the official US motto on the obverse, some on the edge (nearly illegibly) or not at all.

i just recently got one of these Haudenosaunee coins i think its pretty neat i wonder if it will have any value later on in life?

People have been trying to remove in god we trust from are coins for a long Of time. Hey have not been able to do that so now by moving the wording to the edge of the coin where it will soon ware off people won’t even notice that that is on the coin and that’s how to get it removed. Don agree with this type of mint mark nor strategy behind it

Where do you find the date and at what mint it was made?

The date and mint mark are on the edge of the coin.
