2010 Native American $1 Coin
The 2010 Native American $1 Coin features a new reverse design as dictated by the law that authorized it.
According to Public Law 110-82, a design depicting the contributions Native American have made to the development of the United States is to featured on the reverse annually. This theme of Native American influence is to be used as long as the Presidential Dollars are being struck.
"Government - The Great Tree of Peace" was chosen as the concept for 2010 and shows a group of arrows bound together within a Hiawatha Belt. The belt symbolizes the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Confederacy) which was a diplomatic and political structure used by the Native Americans for centuries in the New York area.
