The obverse side of 2020 Proof North Carolina Tuscarora Opossum 1 oz Silver Coins features a stirring portrait of a member of the Tuscarora people. Today, there are some 17,412 members of the Tuscarora tribe. Most of these people live in federally-recognized groups in the state of New York, with another group living in Ontario, Canada, that is federally-recognized by that nations government.


On the reverse field of the 2020 Proof North Carolina Tuscarora Opossum Silver Coin is a depiction of the largest marsupial species in the Western Hemisphere. The opossum is originally from South America and migrated over hundreds of thousands of years across the Central America land bridge into North America following the Great Migration Interchange when the two continents became connected by a physical land bridge.


Before Europeans began to arrive in the New World, the Tuscarora had migrated from their ancestral homeland along the Great Lakes in New York and Ontario to North Carolina. Following the 1711-1713 Tuscarora War between English colonists and allied tribes, the Tuscarora largely migrated out of North Carolina by the time of the American Revolution. During the American Revolution, the Tuscarora had moved to New York and allied with the Iroquois with the assistance of the Oneida. These groups of Tuscarora allied with the colonists and remain in this region to this day. Some Tuscarora had conversely allied with the British during the war, and fled to Ontario, Canada to resettle in the region following the war.
