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.

    This coin doesn’t have a date on it. Is that a mistake that was made by the Mint?

    I ask you

    Gold Dollar coin in Bank?
