U.S. Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill created and sculpted the design.

Found on the dollar’s obverse (heads) is a portrait of Sacagawea as designed by sculptor Glenna Goodacre. The same image has appeared on dollar coins since the release of the 2000 Sacagawea golden dollar. Inscriptions around Sacagawea read: LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST.

I thought the USmint was going to do a 24k gold commemorative of the the Sacagawea this year guess not did not hear any more about it??

I thought the same. Referencing an article from Coin World…https://www.coinworld.com/news/precious-metals/us-mint-eyes-gold-sacagawea-dollar-for-2020.html

Maybe they forgot to remember! Oh well, not my favorite coin but with a limited edition it might have sold well. Does anyone use the dollar coins? I give them to my grand baby and she grabs them to use when the ice cream man comes down the street! Yum! :>J
