Featuring a limited mintage, a strict initial household order limit, a note with a unique serial number, and a coin with a special finish, the 2019 Native American $1 Coin & Currency Set is now available.
The United States Mint-struck coin, a 2019-P Native American $1 Coin with a special enhanced uncirculated finish, is available only within the set. Produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP), the set’s included Series 2017 $1 Federal Reserve note bears a ‘1959’ beginning serial number which correspond to the launch year of the Agena spacecraft that is depicted on the companion coin.
Native American $1 Coins showcase annually changing reverses. This year’s design is spaced-themed, depicting engineer Mary Golda Ross working on aerospace calculations with an Atlas-Agena rocket in the background and an astronaut spacewalking above.
"American Indians have been on the modern frontier of space flight since its infancy. American Indian contributions to the U.S. Space Program culminated in the three spacewalks of John Herrington (Chickasaw) on the International Space Station in 2002," the U.S. Mint describes. "These and other pioneering achievements date back to the work of Mary Golda Ross (Cherokee), one of the first female American Indian engineers. She helped develop the Agena spacecraft for the Gemini and Apollo Programs."
