Jaime Hernandez: The Native American Dollar was introduced in 2009. Every year the coins should display a different design and theme.
The 2010 Native American Dollar displays the same Sacagawea obverse design used on Sacagawea and Native American Dollars. The reverse theme depicts “Government” – The Great Tree of Piece.” It also features a Hiawatha Belt which honors the creation of the Haudenosunee or the Iroquois Confederacy.
The Iroquois was five tribal nations joined together by a single constitution, in the 1400’s in upstate New York. The coins were produced in order to honor these nations which were here long before the states.
The U.S. Mint began selling rolls of the 2010 Native American coins on January 22, 2010 at noon (ET). Each roll of 25 coins was priced at $35.95 each.
