The design, paying tribute to those who walked these lands before us, adds to the collectability of the coin.

The Natchez people were once found living in the lower Mississippi Valley and also along the many tributaries in the area. With strong ties to the water, this tribe was also known to have interacted with some of the very first French colonizers that made their way into what is now known as the American Gulf Coast.

Each of the 2017 Proof Louisiana Natchez Black Bear 1 oz Silver Coins is delivered to you in a protective plastic capsule to ensure the satin finish of the coin isnt damaged.


The obverse design of the 2017 Proof Louisiana Natchez Black Bear 1 oz Silver Coin features the intricately designed image of a Natchez tribal member. The name of the tribe being featured, Natchez, is depicted on the coin. Also depicted are the weight, purity, metal content, year of issue and face value of the coin.


The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Louisiana Natchez Black Bear 1 oz Silver Coin features the American Black Bear. This bear is the smallest of the bears native to North America, and can be found living across many parts of the United States. Black bears living in Louisiana are found most often in the south-central parts of the state.

The coins in the Native Dollars Series released by the Native American Mint have been issued a face value, however, they are not legally allowed to be legal tender in the United States. The government recognizes the sovereign nation status of the tribes, which is why they are permitted to issue the face value and back it themselves.
