The reverse design of the 2018 Proof Nevada Shoshone Desert Tortoise 1 oz Silver Coin features artwork depicting a desert tortoise walking with confidence. The desert tortoise is found across several parts of the southwestern United States and around northwestern Mexico. These beautiful tortoises can live for as long as 80 years, but are considered to be a vulnerable species as a result of habit destruction and their relatively low reproductive rate. Also featured on the reverse of the coin are the words Nevada Desert Tortoise and Jamul Sovereign Nation, America.

While these coins are not considered to be legal tender in the United States at large, they are backed by the Shoshone Tribe, which is recognized by the United States government as a sovereign nation.
