The silver dollars have featured Chiefs Tecumseh and Tenskwatawa and historic events in Shawnee history. The gold pieces generally show a Shawnee chief.

The 2011 Shawnee silver dollar commemorates the 100th anniversary of The Great Comet of 1811 – one of the brightest comets ever seen – that was visible in the sky for 260 days. It was nicknamed “Tecumseh’s Comet.” A portrait of Chief Kish-kallo-wa appears on the 2011 $5 gold.

The Great Comet piece contains 1 ounce of .999 fine silver. Issue prices are $49 for BU and $59 for proof. The Chief Kish-kallo-wa proof contains one-fifth ounce of .999 fine gold and is currently priced at $465.

They are available from official distributor Panda America by writing 3460 Torrance Blvd., Suite 100, Torrance, CA 90503, or by calling (800) 472-6327. All of the Shawnee issues issued beginning with 2002 can be viewed and ordered at www.pandaamerica.com/shawnee.
