The Mohawk are amongst some familiar Native American tribes in the history of the United States. These ferocious warriors offered their protection to the members of the Iroquois Confederation against attacks from other Native American and First Nation tribes in North America. The 2016 Proof New York Mohawk Raccoon 1 oz Silver Coin features 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver. The coins do not have legal tender in the United States, but their $1 face value is backed by the Mohawk tribe. The coins in the Native Silver Dollar Series are highly collectible, due to their historical significance.
The people of the Mohawk tribe have, for countless years, called the Mohawk Valley of upstate New York home. In Iroquois, the name Mohawk translates to people of the Flint place. This is due to their ancient homeland being rich in flint. This helped the Mohawk gain power in the Iroquois Confederation through the flint trade with other tribes.
The warriors of the Mohawk tribe were said to be particularly fierce in combat. The tribes of the Mohawk were often referred to as the Guardians of the Eastern Door. This is due to their protecting the other members of the confederation against the aggressions of those Native American tribes in New England and Eastern Canada along the Atlantic Coast.
The obverse design of the 2016 Proof New York Mohawk Raccoon 1 oz Silver Coin features the image of a proud Mohawk warrior. Also included on the obverse side of the coin are engravings of the coins face value, weight, purity, and metal content.
The reverse design of the 2016 Proof New York Mohawk Raccoon 1 oz Silver Coin features the image of a raccoon. The raccoon was once hunted for its fur. Today, the raccoon is more known for being a garbage-digging nuisance in the suburbs.
The 2016 Proof New York Mohawk Raccoon 1 oz Silver Coin belongs to the Native Silver Dollar Series, produced by the Native American Mint. These coins are not struck by the United States Mint. They have no legal tender status as United States coinage, but do have a face value that is supported by the issuing tribe.
