General Coin Information

The 2011 Native American $1 Coin continues a series of coins that began in 2000 but features a new reverse design for the year showcasing the exchanging of a peace pipe between a Native American and a European settler.

This series of coins originally featured the same obverse and reverse designs annually which included a portrait of the famous Shoshone woman Sacagawea on the obverse with a flying eagle on the reverse. Beginning in 2009, as a result of the Native American $1 Coin Act, the reverses were modified annually to include depictions of the Native American influence on the founding and development of the United States of America.

As the third coin in this new reverse design series, the 2011 strike contains an image of the hands of the Supreme Sachem Ousamequin Massasoit and Governor John Carver exchanging the ceremonial peace pipe after agreeing to the first formal written peace alliance between the Wampanoag tribe and the European settlers.

Obverse Design

Sacagawea, the Shoshone woman who accompanied and guided the Lewis & Clark exploration of the Louisiana Purchase, is shown on the reverse of the 2011 coin. Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, her infant son, is seen on her back with the inscriptions of "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" surrounding them. It was designed by Glenna Goodacre.

Reverse Design

The reverse shows the theme of  "Supreme Sachem Ousamequin, Massasoit of the Great Wampanoag Nation Creates Alliance with Settlers at Plymouth Bay (1621)" by depicting the exchange of a ceremonial peace pipe between a Native American and a European Settler. It was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Richard Masters and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna and also includes the inscriptions of "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "$1" and "WAMPANOAG TREATY 1621."
