Sacagawea Dollars with Major Varieties, Circulation Strikes (2000-present)
In 2000, the U.S. Mint unveiled a new "golden" Dollar designed by Glenna Goodacre and featuring an image of Sacagawea, the young Indian girl who helped guide Lewis and Clark on their famous exploration of the American West. Tucked in a papoose on her back is Sacagawea’s infant son, Pomp. Beginning in 2009, the reverse design of the $1 coin changes to feature designs celebrating the important contributions made by Indian tribes and individual Native Americans to the history and development of the United States. Although this set is relatively new, it is already wildly popular with collectors. Highlights of the set include the Goodacre presentation dollars of 2000 (coins which were given to Ms. Goodacre as payment for her design work) -- these have a special finish unlike that on the regular circulation strikes. The 2000-P Cheerios Dollar, found in cereal boxes, is included. Another popular variety is the 2000-D from the Millennium Set. This is a great set for beginning collectors – the overall quality of the coins is usually nice and the bright, golden color is particularly alluring.
