The United States Mint this week will be releasing products associated with the 2012 Native American Dollar and products associated with the 2012 Kennedy Half Dollar. These products all contain circulation quality examples of the coins despite the fact that neither is actually struck for release into general circulation.
Demand for both coins in circulation is negligible, thus the US Mint only offers them for sale directly to the public to fulfill collector demand. More information on the newly available products is offered below: Continue reading

The United States Mint today officially launched the 2011 Native American $1 Coin. The original release was scheduled for January 12, 2011, but the Mint was forced to cancel that event owing to a string of bad winter weather in the area during that time.
So, the Mint rescheduled the release for today. The event began at 10:30 AM (Eastern Time) and was held at the Henry Hornblower II Visitor Center on Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Attendees to the event included B. B. Craig, United States Mint Associate Director of Sales and Marketing, Cheryl Andrews-Maltais, chairwoman of the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head; Cedric Cromwell, chairman of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe; and Jim Adams, senior historian of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of the American Indian.
The plantations location, and the fact that the ceremony was held there, is not particularly surprising. It is located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, site of the original Plymouth Colony which was established by European settlers in 1620. It was also here that the first formal written peace alliance was created between the European settlers and Native Americans. Continue reading
A new date of March 25, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time (ET) has now been set for the $1 coin ceremony to be held at the Henry Hornblower II Visitor Center on Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This is the same location that the original celebration was to be held at.
The Mint was forced to postpone that original function owing to winter snowstorms that plagued the area that week. It had originally been planned for January 12, 2011.
Those who attend will be in for a unique time. The Plimoth Plantation is considered a living museum where costume role players assume the "lives" of actual 17th century residents of the Plymouth Colony. Some of these original residents went on to become the Pilgrims that every American school child is taught about. Continue reading
The Mint describes the theme of the coin to be "Supreme Sachem Ousamequin, Massasoit of the Great Wampanoag Nation Creates Alliance with Settlers at Plymouth Bay (1621)." It is meant to signify the first formal written peace alliance between the Wampanoag tribe and European settlers.
To signify that alliance, a hand representing Supreme Sachem Ousamequin Massasoit is shown exchanging the peace pipe to the hand representing Governor John Carver. Also shown on the new reverse are the inscriptions of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, $1, WAMPANOAG TREATY and 1621. Continue reading
