This unique setpairs one enhanced uncirculated 2019 Native American $1 Coin produced by the United States Mint at Philadelphia and one $1 Series 2017 note produced by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
The reverse (tails) of the 2019 Native American $1 Coin depicts Mary Golda Ross writing calculations. Behind her, an Atlas-Agena rocket launches into space, with an equation inscribed in its cloud. An astronaut, symbolic of Native American astronauts, including John Herrington, spacewalks above. In the field behind, a group of stars indicates outer space. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “$1.” The coin’s obverse retains the central figure “Sacagawea” carrying her infant son, Jean Baptiste, with the inscriptions “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
The $1 Series 2017 note is from one of the 12 Federal Reserve Bank locations across the United States. It features a serial number beginning with “1959” that corresponds with the launch year of the Agena spacecraft depicted on the reverse of the $1 coin. The note is in a protective sleeve.
