2014 Native American Dollars Go On Sale this Week

On Thursday, March 20, 2014, the United States Mint will begin to offer rolls, bags, and boxes of 2014 Native American dollars struck at the Philadelphia and Denver Mints. The coins are the sixth in a series of Native American dollars featuring annually changing reverse designs, authorized by Public Law 110-82 (September 20, 2007).

nativeThe theme for the 2014 issue is “Native Hospitality Ensured the Success of the Lewis and Clark Expedition”. According to the United States Mint, the design “depicts a Native American man offering a pipe, while his wife offers provisions of fish, corn, roots, and gourds.” In the background is a symbolic representation of Captain William Clark’s compass. The design is the work of United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Chris Costello. The sculptor is Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna.

The Sacagawea (after 2008, the Native American) dollar was originally devised to be a regular United States circulating coin. However, due to a lack of institutional demand and over-production, the coin is now produced for collectors only.

This year the Mint is offering individual $25 rolls of Native American dollars for $32.95. $100 Bags are being offered at $111.95 and $250 boxes cost $275.95. Prices do not include shipping and handling.

Since Congress created the United States Mint on April 2, 1792, the primary mission of the Mint is to produce an adequate volume of circulating coinage for the nation. As a self-funded agency, the United States Mint turns revenues beyond its operating expenses over to the General Fund of the Treasury. Other responsibilities include: Maintaining physical custody and protection of the Nation's $100 billion of U.S. gold and silver assets; Manufacturing and selling platinum, gold, and silver bullion coins; and Overseeing production facilities in Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point, as well as the U.S. Bullion Depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
