The 2016 Proof South Dakota Sioux Buffalo 1 oz Silver Coin was the 6th design released in the Native Series of Silver Coins, released by the Native American Mint. Each of the coins in the series represents a tribe or sovereign nation. This beautifully designed coin features 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver. The coin has a face value of $1, but it is not considered to be legal tender in the United States. The coin is, however, backed by the Native American Mint and the issuing tribe. The coins in this collection have proven to be very popular amongst the collector and the investor.
The Sioux Tribe are one of the largest Native American tribes in North America. The name Sioux is often used as a blanket description, to refer to any of the members of the Great Sioux Nation. The Santee, Lakota, and the Yankton-Yanktonai make up the Great Sioux Nation.
Each of the Sioux Nation tribes oversaw different regions in the upper Midwest part of the United States, and also across Southern Canada. The Santee were known to reside in the Eastern Dakotas, Minnesota, and also northern Iowa. The Yankton called the Minnesota River Valley home, while the Lakota were known to inhabit large areas of the Western Dakotas. Of the Sioux Nation, it is the Lakota people who are best known, most often for their warrior culture.
