2011 Native American $1 Coin Rolls

Having just posted on the 2011 Native American $1 Coin.  I just wanted to follow-up for all the roll collectors, both the “P” and “D” mint rolls are now available in special mint packaging.  Each roll contains 25 circulating-quality coins minted at the United States Mint facilities at Philadelphia or Denver.  Stop by the U.S. Mint Store today to complete your roll collection.

FROM THE  U.S.MINT IN WASHINGTON – “The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for rolls of 2011 Native American $1 Coins at noon Eastern Time (ET) on March 28, 2011.  The rolls, priced at $39.95 each, contain 25 circulating-quality Native American $1 Coins from either the United States Mint facility at Philadelphia or Denver.  The coins are presented in distinctive packaging bearing the mintage year, the mint of origin, the dollar value of the contents and the United States Mint logo.

The theme for the 2011 Native American $1 Coin is “Supreme Sachem Ousamequin, Massasoit of the Great Wampanoag Nation Creates Alliance with Settlers at Plymouth Bay (1621).”  The coin’s reverse (tails side) 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 European settlers.  Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, $1 and WAMPANOAG TREATY 1621.  The reverse was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Richard Masters and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna.

The coin’s obverse (heads) design remains the familiar “Sacagawea” design by sculptor Glenna Goodacre, introduced in 2000.  Inscriptions are LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST.  Like the Presidential $1 Coins, the Native American $1 Coins are minted in the distinctive golden color with edge-lettering of the year, mint mark and E PLURIBUS UNUM.

Public Law 110-82-the Native American $1 Coin Act of 2008-authorizes the United States Mint to strike and issue $1 coins featuring designs that celebrate the important contributions of Indian tribes and individual Native Americans to the history and development of the U.S.  The first coin in the series, issued in 2009, features a reverse design of a Native American woman planting seeds in a field of corn, beans and squash.  The second, issued in 2010, featured a reverse design of the Hiawatha Belt with five arrows bound together.  Additional information about the Native American Program is a click away!”
