WASHINGTON — The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for 2014 American $1 Coin and Currency Set (product code TA9) on Nov. 20 at noon Eastern Standard Time (EST).
Priced at $13.95, the set consists of a tri–fold presentation folder that holds one uncirculated finish 2014 Native American $1 Coin from the United States Mint at Denver and one 2013 $1 note from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The set has interesting historical information about the Lewis and Clark Expedition and a sleeve to cover the folder. A Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the package.
The reverse (tails side) of the 2014 Native American $1 Coin depicts a Native American man offering a pipe while his wife offers provisions of fish, corn, roots, and gourds. In the background is a stylized image of the face of William Clark’s compass highlighting “NW,” the area in which the expedition occurred. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “$1.”
The coin’s obverse (heads side) retains the central figure of the “Sacagawea” design first produced in 2000 with the inscriptions “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
