2009 Native American Coin, Obverse - Click to Enlarge

The 2009 Native American Coin features a different reverse design than had been featured on the series which started in 2000. According to the Native American $1 Coin Act, the reverse design needed to change in order to portray the contributions Native Americans have made to the history of the United States.

As such, the theme for the 2009 reverse was chosen as agriculture and features a woman planting seeds of beans, squash and corn. Known as the "Three Sisters Agriculture", planting of these crops together was discovered by the Native Americans who found each plant actually flourished with the help of the other.

The obverse still contains an image of the Native American woman Sacagawea who helped explorers Lewis and Clark on their journey through the Louisiana Purchase.

Proof and uncirculated versions of the Native American coin are also available.
