Starting Feb. 12 at noon EST, the United States Mint began accepting orders for product options containing the 2020 Native American $1 coin. The theme of this year’s coin is Elizabeth Peratrovich and Alaska’s Anti-Discrimination Law.
The reverse design of the coin features a portrait of Elizabeth Peratrovich. Her advocacy was considered a deciding factor in the passage of the 1945 Anti-Discrimination Law in the Alaskan Territorial Government. The foreground features a symbol of the Tlingit Raven moiety, of which she was a member. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “ELIZABETH PERATROVICH,” “$1,” and “ANTI-DISCRIMINATION LAW OF 1945.”
The coin’s obverse design continues to feature Sacagawea carrying her infant son, Jean Baptiste, by sculptor Glenna Goodacre. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The year, mintmark and “E PLURIBUS UNUM” are incused on the edge of the coin. The coins have a circulating finish but have never been put into circulation.
There are six options that customers may currently purchase: the 25-coin roll (P) and (D) costs $34.50 each. The 250-coin box (P) and (D) costs $289.75 each. Finally, there are the 100-coin bags (P) and (D) that cost $117.50 each. At the time of this writing, there is no mintage, product or household order limit.
