These coins will be available to customers in 25–coin rolls for $35.50 and in 2,000–coin bags for $2,190.00. These coins bear either the Philadelphia mint mark “P”or the Denver mint mark “D,” and there is no order limit.

American sculptor Glenna Goodacre designed the obverse of the Golden Dollar coin, which features the likeness of Sacagawea, the young Shoshone woman who assisted Lewis and Clark on their exploration of the Louisiana Purchase almost 200 years ago. The reverse design of the coin, by United States Mint Sculptor/Engraver Thomas D. Rogers, Sr., features a soaring bald eagle and 17 stars, one for each of the states at the time of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
