For centuries, Native American peoples and culture have been celebrated on coins and currency. Perhaps the most famous example of this is the aging Native American man who appears on the obverse of James Earle Fraser’s Buffalo Nickel. Even today, the U.S. Mint continues to honor the rich history and culture of Native Americans with the Native American $1 Coin Program. However in recent years, Native American tribes have opted to tell their own stories as well, and they are achieving that through the Native American Mint. The Native American Mint is starting to grow in popularity, and its issues would make some unique additions to silver collections. Be sure to consider some of its pieces as you grow your collection.
