The Native American Mint released a series of proof dollar coins in 2015 that paid tribute to some of the Native American tribes. Each of the coins represents a state and an animal that is native to the state or otherwise important to the tribe that is honored in the design. The 2017 Proof Indiana Miami Mink 1 oz Silver Coin honors the Miami tribe, which was known to have lived in what is now known as Indiana. The coins are made with 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver, and have a face value of $1. Its important to note that these coins are not considered to be legal tender in the United States.
The Miami tribe was known to have settled in large areas of the southern Great Lakes States, until they were largely forcibly resettled to what was known as the Indian Territory. Today, the Indian Territory is better known as Oklahoma.
The Miami Tribe of Oklahoma is actually is a federally recognized tribe of Miami Indians. These people are thought to have had some very early contact with some of the explorers and conquerors from the West.
