The Native American Mint embarked on an ambitious but wonderful program, with the release of the Native American Silver Dollar Series. This collection features fresh new designs and represents different Native American tribes from across the United States and Canada. The obverse of the coin always features a tribal figure, while the reverse will always feature an animal that held value to the tribe being features. The 2019 Proof Minnesota Dakota Turtle 1 oz Silver Coin is the 5th design released in 2019 and is the 25th total design released in the collection. The collection, made from .999 pure silver, has proven itself to be incredibly popular.
When you order your 2019 Proof Minnesota Dakota Turtle 1 oz Silver Coin, it arrives secured in a protective plastic capsule. These proofs have mirrored background fields with matte design elements. While each of the coins has been given a face value of $1, the coins are not able to be considered legal tender in the United States. The value of the coins is backed by tribe issuing the coin, but its important to note that under federal law only the United States Mint can legally issue legal tender in the United States.
As perhaps one of the most well-known Native American tribes, the Dakota people had a far reach across the United States and even parts of Canada. The tribe is divided into what can be described as subcultures; the western Dakota and the eastern Dakota. The people of the Dakota tribes have long been found residing in Minnesota, Iowa and both North and South Dakota.
The obverse design of the 2019 Proof Minnesota Dakota Turtle 1 oz Silver Coin features a beautifully detailed image of a Dakota tribal elder in a traditional headdress. A branch of Dakota tribe members was historically found living in central Minnesota, due to the abundance of animals and plant life that allowed them to thrive. Also on the obverse of the coin is the tribe identification Dakota along with the year of mint, face value, weight, purity and metal content of the coin itself.
The reverse side of the 2019 Proof Minnesota Dakota Turtle 1 oz Silver Coin features a detailed design of a beautiful aquatic turtle. The turtle can be found living in most bodies of water around the United States, including the more than 21,000 lakes that are to be discovered in Minnesota. Turtles have long been a resource for Native American tribes for their eggs, their meat, and their shells.
Your 2019 Proof Minnesota Dakota Turtle 1 oz Silver Coin may have an issued face value of $1, however it is not considered legal tender in the United States. These coins are backed by the issuing tribe, as they are federally recognized sovereign entities. The United States Mint holds the exclusive right to produce legal tender in the country.
