I have a coin with Sacajawea name and picture on the front and on the back it says The Shoshone Tribe on it...no date or value. What is this?
With the limited amount of information you posted, I cannot determine what you have or what it would be worth. Is there any reason you cannot post a picture of it and/or give a more detailed description of it?
Also, if you choose to log back in with additional information, would you please log in with a name? It's always challenging to do research for an unknown audience.
But, the Sacagawea Golden Dollar, (obverse designed by Glenna Goodacre), was first issued in 2000 as a replacement for the ill-received Susan B. Anthony dollar coin. The Sacagawea coin depicts the young Shoshone woman with her infant son, Jean-Baptiste, slung on her back. Goodacre's primary model for the coin was Randy'L Teton, a 22-year old Idaho Shoshone woman living in New Mexico at the time.
I am unfamiliar with any of the Sacagawea coins issued without a date or with only the shoshone Tribe name on it. This is why a picture would come in handy in case I mis-understood your description of the coin.
I believe I may have the same coin. 1" diameter coin with "SACAJEWEA",who is facing left,has two solid braids, a headband with two feathers at a low downward angle. This was purchased with a set of 12 more matching copper colored coins with failing gold plating.
on the reverse, a peace pipe with feather,and "THE SHOSHONE TRIBE". Teeney Copyright "C" in a circle, followed bt the letters F M.Some of the other coins have a teeney "CORNELL", by the primary image.
I would love to know more.
The other 12 are: FRONT / BACK
CRAZY HORSE / THE OGALALA SIOUX TRIBE
WILD BILL HICKOCK / MARSHAL ABILENE
