The 2018 Proof Wyoming Kiowa Horned Lizard 1 oz Silver Coin is a part of the Native American Mint series of coins that pays tribute to native tribes across North America and some parts of Canada. The collection has proven to be incredibly popular, with new releases being eagerly anticipated by collectors. This coin contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.
The Proof Native American Silver Dollar Coin series is truly remarkable. This vast series has a strict guideline for its representation of native tribes throughout the North American continent. With each new design release, a new tribe is featured with imagery representing both the tribe, the state of their historical residential range, and a notable local wildlife species.
These coins have been in production since 2015, and the Proof Silver Dollars have a face value of One Dollar issued by the tribe represented on the coin. However, the United States Mint is the only mint in the country authorized to strike legal tender coinage, meaning the coins have no legal tender status in the US economy.
With an estimated 12,000 members in the United States, the Kiowa Tribe currently resides in Oklahoma. However, this is merely where the tribe was forcibly removed during the late 19thcentury. Historically speaking, the Kiowa tribal people emerged as a distinct ethnic grouping in the Northern Missouri River Basin, establishing a home in the Black Hills region of present-day South Dakota and Wyoming around the year 1650.
The obverse design of the 2018 Proof Wyoming Kiowa Horned Lizard 1 oz Silver Coin features the detailed image of a member of the Kiowa Tribe. Also featured on the obverse of the coin are the year of release, weight, purity, face value and metal content of the coins.
The reverse design of the 2018 Proof Wyoming Kiowa Horned Lizard 1 oz Silver Coin features the horned toad, also often referred to as the horny toast. There are actually 15 species of the horned lizard in North America. They are well-adapted to a life lived in desert environments. Also featured on the reverse side of the coin are the words America, Wyoming Horned Lizard, and Jamul Sovereign Nation.
While the coins have been issued a face value by the North American Mint, they are not considered to be legal tender in the United States. Only the United States Mint has the authorization to assign legal tender.
