Native American Dollars

Next year the US Mint will begin a new series known as Native American Dollars. This series is actually somewhat of a replacement/continuation of the previous Sacagawea Dollar coin series.

The Native American Dollars will feature the obverse design of the Sacagawea Dollar plus reverse designs which will change each year. The reverse designs will celebrate the history and contributions of Native Americans by portraying figures and events from their history and culture.

Interestingly, the coins will circulate along side the Presidential Dollar coins. The authorizing legislation for the new series stipulates that 20% of all dollar coins produced must be Native American Dollars.

The first design for the new series was just released. It was designed and sculpted by Norman E. Nemeth and features a Native American woman planting seeds in a field. Visible are corn, bean, and squash plants, representing the Three Sisters method of planting. The full design appears below:
