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.
