Theres nothing quite as awe-inspiring as a solar or lunar eclipse. The 2017 Proof Oglala Lakota Sioux Solar Eclipse Curved 1 oz Silver Coin was designed to recognize the 2017 solar eclipse. The eclipse was often considered to be an omen of bad things to come. Each of the coins contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver and features a face value of $1, as is backed by the Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe. The coins do not have legal tender status in the United States. They are produced by the Native American Mint, which is able to assign a face value to the coins due to the sovereign nation status of the issuing tribe.
To the Native Americans, a solar eclipse was seen as a supernatural or sacred event. The 2017 Proof Oglala Lakota Sioux Solar Eclipse Curved 1 oz Silver Coin was released to honor the 2017 North American solar eclipse. The coin was released by the partnership of the Native American Mint and Oglala Lakota Sioux tribe.
The 2017 solar eclipse was known as the Great American Total Solar Eclipse. A solar eclipse takes place when the moon passes between the sun and the earth. The moon blocks the rays of the sun so that they cannot reach the surface of the earth during the daytime hours.
The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Oglala Lakota Sioux Solar Eclipse Curved 1 oz Silver Coin features the breathtaking colorized image of the moon as it passes in front of the sun. Sun flares and other solar blasts are shown coming out from the surface of the sun behind the white, cratered surface of the moon. The black depths of space fill out the background of the coin.
The reverse design of the 2017 Proof Oglala Lakota Sioux Solar Eclipse Curved 1 oz Silver Coin features a satellite image of both North America and South America. The design shows the path that the solar eclipse was expected to take as it moved across the lower 48 states, in an arc from Oregon to South Carolina.
These beautifully designed coins are just one of approximately a dozen curved silver coins seen to be in production across the world. The convex surface of the coin is the obverse, with the stunning image of the eclipse, while the reverse of the coin features the concave surface.
