leave a comment »

The launch of the 2011 Native American $1 Coin will be on March 25, 2011 at the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Mass.  This reverse was designed by Richard Masters and the engraver was Joseph Menna.

The theme of the Coin is:  Supreme Sachem Ousamequin, Massasoit of the Great Wampanoag Nation Creates Alliance with Settlers at Plymouth Bay (1621)

The U.S. Mint description is as follows :

The design features hands of the Supreme Sachem Ousamequin Massasoit and Governor John Carver, symbolically offering the ceremonial peace pipe after the initiation of the first formal written peace alliance between the Wampanoag tribe and the European settlers. The design includes the required inscriptions, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and $1, along with the additional inscription WAMPANOAG TREATY 1621.”

The Obverse was designed by Glenda Goodacre and remains the Native American Sacagawea, which was first produced in 2000.
