2012 Native American $1 Coin

Rolls and boxes of 2012 Native American $1 Coins were released by the United States Mint on Thursday, April 26, 2012, and the bureau announced that it would also offer bags of the coins beginning on May 14, 2012.

This year's dollar features the fourth reverse design since 2009 when the Native American $1 Coin Act kicked in, which charges the US Mint with annually changing reverses to celebrate the different contributory aspects of Indian tribes and individual Native Americans. 2012 Native American $1 Coins feature a reverse design by Thomas Cleveland which depicts a Native American and horse. More horses are seen running in the background. The scene is meant to symbolize the "Trade Routes in the 17th Century." The image was sculpted by Phebe Hemphill.

With rolls and boxes of the dollars available directly from the United States Mint website at http://catalog.usmint.gov or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT (872-6468), buyers need only decide whether to make a purchase of either (or both) Philadelphia or Denver minted $1 coins.

Each of the products contain circulating quality 2012 Native American $1 Coins. The available rolls come filled with 25 dollars at a price of $32.95. Boxes are available in two sizes, 250- and 500-coin amounts. Each 250-coin box costs $275.95 while each 500-coin box is priced at $550.95. Due to their weight, the 500-coin boxes also have an additional shipping charge of $7.95 per, above the standard shipping and handling fee of $4.95 for all domestic orders. Upcoming 100-coin bags will be priced at $111.95, according to a US Mint press notice published on Friday.

As the Treasury Department ordered the US Mint to discontinue $1 coin production for circulation, they will no longer be available through local banks. The US Mint, therefore, will be the main and likely least expensive source for this year's and other upcoming dollars.
