Rolls, bags and boxes of 2014 Native American $1 Coins were released by the United States Mint today, March 20, 2014, at noon (ET).
Product options include the newest designed Native American $1 Coins in circulating-quality from either the U.S. Mint facility in Philadelphia or Denver. In total, buyers may choose from six different products to include 25-coin rolls, 100-coin bags and 250-coin boxes.
No longer available in the Native American $1 Coin program are 500-coin boxes. The United States Mint last December said that they would be discontinued. These boxes debuted in 2012 after the elimination of a bulk bag program but suffered themselves from declining sales and were canceled.
2014 Native American Dollar Coin Designs
Native American $1 coins have featured annually changing reverse designs since 2009 making this newest release the seventh in the series. Design changes were dictated by Public Law 110-82 which directed the U.S. Mint to issue the coins with images that celebrate contributions of Indian tribes or individuals to the history and development of the United States.
The design for the reverse of the 2014 Native American $1 Coin was unveiled last October. It depicts a Native American man offering a pipe, while his wife offers provisions of fish, corn, roots, and gourds. Captain William Clark’s compass can be seen behind the individuals emblematic of the Lewis and Clark Expedition into the northwest quadrant.
Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and $1. The reverse design is the work of United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Chris Costello with United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna sculpting.
"Sacagawea" is featured on the obverse as designed by Glenda Goodacre and seen on every Native American dollar. Obverse inscriptions are "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
An edge inscription is found on each coin showing the year of 2014, an initial for the mint of origin (P or D), and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

*It is possible that the U.S. Mint could produce more this year. Since 2011, dollar coins are no longer issued into circulation and mintages have therefore plunged. Collector demand for them in rolls, bags and boxes will decide this year’s final mintages.
