Priced at $14.95, this set includes a tri–fold presentation folder that holds one enhanced uncirculated 2015 Native American $1 Coin — available only in this set — and one $1 Series 2013 note from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
The set contains historical information about the Mohawk Ironworkers and their contributions to “high iron” construction work on New York City skyscrapers, including the World Trade Center.

Native American $1 Coins have reverse (tails side) designs that celebrate the important contributions made by Indian tribes and individual Native Americans to the history and development of the United States. The reverse of the 2015 coin features a Mohawk ironworker reaching for an I–beam that is swinging into position, rivets on the left and right side of the border, and a high elevation view of the city skyline in the background. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “$1,” and “MOHAWK IRONWORKERS.” The reverse was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Ronald D. Sanders and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor–Engraver Phebe Hemphill.
The coin’s obverse (heads side) retains the “Sacagawea” design first produced in 2000 with the inscriptions “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The design is by sculptor Glenda Goodacre.
