SILVER NATIVE AMERICAN - IROQUOIS - PROOFLIKE


Price: Check with Distributor

Part of the new Proof Silver State Dollars program, this round is from the Native American Mint and is part of a series that features a state, a tribe associated with that state, often they are from that exact area, and an animal integral to the tribe. These coins reflect the sovereign status of Native American tribes and are instrumental in honoring tribal history and culture spanning centuries.  The designs on these Silver coins represent the history and culture of Native American tribes.  

An incredible portrait of an Iroquois Indian in full headdress with war paint across his face is shown on one side. Around the rim is the weight of 1 troy oz, the purity, and the year. The other side honors the state of Pennsylvania, a territory once populated with Iroquois Indians, and a skunk is featured below. The animals in this series are selected based off animals the tribes would have come into contact with and animals associated with each state. 

Adding to their collectibility is the fact that they are the only American, non-U.S. government coins available in the marketplace. Indigenous Native American tribes have tribal sovereignty in the United States, giving them the authority to govern themselves within the borders of the United States. These tribes are considered "domestic dependent nations," which is a form of parallel sovereignty within the U.S. constitutional framework.

This coin is an official commercial item that represents the tribe, but there is no legal face value, as tribes are not allowed to create their own currencies. This ability is reserved for the federal government.

Minted in Cincinnati Ohio from American sourced .999 pure silver, it has a minimum weight of 1 Troy Ounce. Each Coin is struck to proof standard, with antique finish applied, serial numbered, packed in a clear capsule and ships along with a Certificate of Authenticity with matching number. 

Every product made by Osborne is manufactured to the strictest standards for metal purity, weight and dimensions.
