Here are photos of the set’s product contents — its coin and $1 banknote.
The set’s $1 coin and $1 bill are in a tri–fold presentation folder containing historical information about the Mohawk Ironworkers, product specifications and a U.S. Mint certificate of authenticity. The folder ships inside a sleeve, which is shown left.
The set’s main attraction is its exclusive 2015-W Enhanced Uncirculated Native American $1 Coin from the U.S. Mint facility at West Point, which normally produces only platinum, gold and silver coins. The West Point Mint is not a complete stranger to $1 coins featuring Sacagawea, having struck some test 22-karat gold examples with a dozen of them flying in space aboard Space Shuttle Columbia on mission STS-93 in July 1999. Above are photos of an obverse (heads) and reverse (tails).
The $1 coin’s obverse retains the Sacagawea design by sculptor Glenda Goodacre first introduced in 2000.
The reverse depicts a Mohawk ironworker reaching for an I-beam that is swinging into position, with rivets on the left and right side of the border, and a high elevation view of the city skyline in the background. Ronald D. Sanders designed it and Phebe Hemphill executed its sculpting. The photos below show how the coin’s enhanced uncirculated finish appears under varying angles of light.
Edges of dollar coins bear the year of minting, the mint mark for the U.S. Mint facility where it was produced and E PLURIBUS UNUM. In this photo, you can see the year ‘2015’ and ‘W’ for the West Point Mint’s mint mark.
Each set has a Series 2013 $1 Federal Reserve note from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. This photo shows the note’s face.
Each note has a beginning serial number of ‘911’ in honor of the Mohawk Ironworkers recovery efforts following the collapse of the World Trade Center twin towers in 2001. Above the serial number, you can see the New York Federal Reserve Bank designation.
