This year’s release features a reverse (tails side) design of Maria Tallchief, who was an Osage Nation Native American ballerina, and four other dancers. Tallchief is considered to be America’s first prima ballerina and noted for her lasting legacy in the art.

2023 Native American Dollar Coin Designs

Created by Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Designer Benjamin Sowards and sculpted by U.S. Mint Medallic Artist Phebe Hemphill, the design was selected from among 7 candidates.

Candidate designs that were originally considered for the reverse (tails side) of the 2023 Native American $1 Coin.

Maria Tallchief is front and center of the design, locked in a graceful ballet pose. Behind, and to each side of Tallchief, four more dancers appear. They represent Tallchief’s younger sister Marjorie Tallchief, Yvonne Chouteau, Rosella Hightower, and Moscelyne Larkin. Together, the group was known as the "Five Moons," which is also signified by the lunar motif of the image.

Inscriptions around the design include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "MARIA TALLCHIEF," "$1," and "AMERICAN INDIANS IN BALLET."

All obverses (heads side) in the coin series share a likeness of Sacagawea carrying her infant son, Jean-Baptiste. Sculptor Glenna Goodacre is responsible for the image.

As much as I would like to jump in on these I have to pass as I am now spending previous issues and the Presidential series of dollars. Doing my part to put them out there in circulation.


The way it should be. Kudos to you! I’ll pass on this issue because I’m not a big fan of ballet or opera, not that there’s anything wrong with it.

Kaiser —
You might recall that the Mint actually did have a program for getting the US Presidential dollar coins into circulation. They even made shipping FREE to encourage them being bought. I got some rolls for my daughter, a 6th Grade Teacher at the time, to give out to her 6th Grade at Jefferson Elementary that she continued to use at John Adam’s Elementary for spontaneous recognition.

After all, the challenge for us oldsters is to make Infancy as interesting to Infants as Adultery is interesting to Adults ….

Mike: Great idea to get the kids interested. That was the program that got me started. I was ordering boxes and keeping a few for myself. Now parting with those.

Thanks Antonio and Kaiser.


She will also be the subject of an AWQ coming out this year as well.


Although not related to the 2023 Native American $1 Coins, just noticed the release date for the American Eagle 2023 One Ounce Silver Proof Coin – West Point (W) and the Congratulations Set 2023 – West Point (W) changed to March 2 from February 28 and the price for the two products is still TBD. The ASE Proof coin has a mintage and product limit = None and Household Order Limit = 25, and the Congratulations Set has a product limit = 40,000 and HOL = 3.


And in its ever confusing way of doing things, my subscriptions no longer are sorted by date, but apparently entire random order. The roll of Native American D mint has been processed and the P mint doesn’t show anywhere at the moment. Under product schedule, something like the Morgan Dollars says ‘summer 2023’ but an exact date is provided under subscription. Gotta love it!


oh, and the Ohio dollar 25 coin roll P went from less than 100 yesterday to over 600 available (Kaiser must have cancelled a bunch, HA) and there are less rolls available for the Louisiana under subscription than Ohio available at the moment


Hey there Guys and Gals!

First post and just wanted to give you all a heads up that the US Mint is raising prices on Silver Medals, ASE’s, the AWQ’s series products in addition to the 2023 scheduled Peace and Morgan dollars!

The Silver Medal prices increase today and the others go into effect tomorrow!


Thanks for the heads up, Caliskier! Very interesting information; Is there a source where this information is referenced? As of 11am ET today (2/7/2023) the Silver Medal prices have not changed. Will tomorrow’s silver products’ price increases go into effect at 1pm ET (like the weekly price range pricing changes for gold, platinum and palladium products, which may change on Wednesdays in the afternoon)?


Hey there Rich and others, this information comes from the Federal Register, however you’re probably now aware, since they now have an article pertaining to the Silver Medals.


Here are the new prices: ”Presidential Silver Medals $75.00 Armed Forces 1 oz. Silver Medal $75.00 Armed Forces 2.5 oz. Silver Medals $175.00” and “American Eagle Silver Proof Coin (W) $80  American Eagle Silver Proof Coin (S) $80  American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin $76  United States Mint Proof Set® $35  United States Mint Silver Proof Set® $130  United States Mint Limited Edition Silver Proof SetTM $220  United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set® $29  United States Mint Congratulations Set $82  American Women Quarters Proof SetTM $23  American Women Quarters Silver Proof SetTM $80  Morgan Dollar—Proof $80  Morgan Dollar—Uncirculated $76  Peace Dollar—Proof… Read more »


did they list a price for the 2 coin reverse proof set Morgan/Peace?


The Mint has on their website: Approx. $175.00 per subscription.

Caliskier: Thanks for the heads up! This will squeeze my overall purchases on the eagles for sure. I will cut back 10% on those. Will evaluate others.


with about a 10% increase across the board that means the 2 coin reverse dollar coins will be probably 190 or more. Ouch!
the 3 roll S quarters went up $6, and I guess that mike explain suddenly under subscription 2 rolls are now available. wonder if there is a connection! but if you are interested in the S quarters and don’t have a subscription a small window of opportunity is open at the moment.


Yes, but a $190 bought from the Mint, how much in resale? That’s where the thinking should be at, the investment inflation factor.


under data-available there are only 46,352 coins available. If the amount available under subscription = 250,000 then over 80% have been sold. I’m still not so sure the mint doesn’t hold some in reserve for day of release (or for under the table for the BIG GUY) you would like to think it doesn’t happen, but…
Under my subscriptions, Nov 14 is listed as the date for the release of the 2 coin set. So that is 9 months away. guess we shall see how fast they might go the next few months.


Tom there wasn’t any mention of the 2023 2 coin RP Morgan Peace dollar set. I wouldn’t be surprised if these also increase and expect they will also see at least a $5-$10 jump? Time will tell…


Glad you all appreciate the sharing of this information! Thanks for the welcome and not “shooting the messenger” Kaiser Wilhelm! Wonder how many different spell check naming conventions have been added or amended by AI, KW? My posts can be brutally “truthful” when it comes to the US Mint these past few years. Been known to be a bit “frisky” one could say and tromping thru bushes loaded with birds is easy pickings. You all know what they say about the truth? I’ll leave it at that. BTW this is one of many sites I frequent and lurk, so maybe… Read more »

Normally get 6-8 rolls. Give most of mine out to Youth group at Church for AttABoys/Girls. They get a kick out of it and some started collecting.
Thanks to Uncle Joe, have to pass this year.

Why does my sacajawea $1-have no mint marks on any of my coins. These coins she has a tear coming from right eye? What’s going on?
