The United States Mint first minted the Sacagawea dollar one dollar coin in the year 2000. In 2008, The Native American $1 Coin Act dictated a design change that memorializes Native Americans and "the important contributions made by individual tribes and individual Native Americans to the development of the United States." Additionally, the act called for edge markings to include the year of minting, mint marks, and the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM to be incuse on the edge of the coin.
Glenna Goodacre's portrait of Native American Shoshone Sacagawea and her infant son, Jean Baptiste, was selected in a national competition for the obverse design of the coin. Thomas D. Rogers, Sr. designed the reverse of the coin featuring an American bald eagle soaring in flight. The coin is 26.5 mm in diameter, weighs 8.1 grams and is composed of a pure copper core with outer layers of magnesium brass (77% copper, 12% zinc, 7% manganese, and 4% nickel). Although the mint originally marketed this coin as the "Golden Dollar," the coin does not contain any gold.
Although the coin barely circulated, the United States Mint currently manufactures Native American one dollar coins. From 2002 through 2008, the Sacagawea dollars were minted only for collectors. In 2009 the Native American dollars were first minted. Unfortunately, only coin collectors were able to purchase these coins directly from the United States Mint in bags and rolls.
