The Native American Mint embarked on an ambitious project, to produce 50 coins that each represented one of the states in the United States and also one of the federally recognized Native American tribes. The 2016 Proof Florida Seminole Alligator 1 oz Silver Coin is the 8th design released in the collection that fast proved itself to be popular amongst collectors and investors alike. Each of the coins contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and has an issued face value of $1. The coins have a face value that is backed by the issuing tribe, but is not considered to be legal tender in the United States.
Each of the coins in the Native American Dollar series pays tribute to a tribe that called North America and some parts of Canada home. The 2016 Proof Florida Seminole Alligator 1 oz Silver Coin is the 8th design released in the collection and highlights the Seminole people.
The Seminole people were thought to have resided across much of what we know as the state of Florida today. Today, the majority of the Seminole nation people are found to reside in Oklahoma, as a result of being forcibly relocated during what is now knows as the Trail of Tears. Other tribes that were forced out of their ancestral homes include the Cherokee and Creeks of Georgia, Mississippi, and from other regions in the United States.
The obverse design of the 2016 Proof Florida Seminole Alligator 1 oz Silver Coin features a beautifully drawn image of a Seminole tribal member. A traditional headdress is shown upon his head. The words Seminole are engraved above his image. Also engraved on the obverse side of the coin are the mint date, purity, face value and weight of the coin.
The reverse design of the 2016 Proof Florida Seminole Alligator 1 oz Silver Coin depicts an alligator, which is one of the animals Florida is most often synonymous with. Alligators are found most often in the marshlands that Florida has in abundance. Engravings on the reverse side of the coin include the name of the animal, the state, and the word America.
The 2016 Proof Florida Seminole Alligator 1 oz Silver Coin, and each of the coins in the collection, are produced by the Native American Mint, which is found in Torrance, California. The Jamul Sovereign Nation operates the mint, independent of any federal mint.
