A 2014 Native American $1 Coin from Denver and a Series 2013 $1 Federal Reserve note printed for the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City are available together within a joint United States Mint and Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) product called the 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set.
The uncirculated $1 coin and crisp, uncirculated $1 note are sold for $13.95. They are held within a tri-fold presentation folder that includes information about the coin and dollar, history about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and a certificate of authenticity.
"The American $1 Coin and Currency Set contains information about Native American history as it intersects with the Lewis and Clark Expedition," describes the U.S. Mint’s on its website.
2014 Native American $1 Coins commemorate how Native American hospitality ensured the success of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. They feature a reverse or tails side depicting a Native American man offering a pipe while his wife presents provisions of fish, corn, roots, and gourds. The background offers a stylized image of the face of William Clark’s compass as it highlights "NW," the area in which the expedition occurred.
"Lewis expressed the highest respect for one of the American Indian chiefs and walked miles out of his way to smoke a pipe with him," the set’s tri-folder states in part. "Members of the expedition group traded for corn and gathered every bit of intelligence they could about the route ahead."
The $1 coin’s design was crafted by Chris Costello and sculpted by Joseph F. Menna.
Coin News Update: The U.S. Mint has confirmed that the Native American $1 Coin has a unique enhanced uncirculated finish. We’ll publish more information as it becomes available.
