Makeover for Sacagawea Dollar – 2009 Heralds New Reverse
A new design for the reverse of the Sacagawea dollar coin is mandated by Congress. The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee viewed many designs in June and selected a female Indian planting maze (corn) in a field. This design is intended for use on the 2009 dollar coin, the first featuring a Native American theme. Each year thereafter a different Native American design will appear. The Indian maiden picking corn was chosen for the next minting. Second choice was “The Three Sisters” which I have shown in a photo. Other submissions are also shown.
