2012 NA $1 coin revealed

The design for the reverse of the 2012 Native American $1 coin has been selected, the United States Mint announced.

Its reverse design features a Native American and horse in profile with horses running in the background, representing the historical spread of the horse.

It reflects the theme “Trade Routes in the 17th Century,” which pays tribute to early Native American commerce that was conducted over trade routes that cut across the plains and swerved along rivers and was facilitated by the horse that made the long journeys possible.
