2016 1 oz Silver Native American Mint $1 Sioux Indian

As low as $1.59 per coin over spot!
The new APMEXclusive® Native American Mint's 1 oz Silver bullion coin features the Sioux Indian. This coin is authorized by the Oglala Sioux Tribe, which is the largest of the Sioux nations and is located at Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Second in the Sioux Buffalo series! Available only at APMEX, these coins reflect the sovereign status of Native American tribes and are instrumental in honoring tribal history and culture spanning centuries. Adding to their collectibility is the fact that they are the only American, non-U.S. government coins available in the marketplace.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver, struck in a beautiful Reverse Proof quality.
  • Multiples of 20 come in plastic tubes. Multiples of 500 come packaged in boxes. Individual coins come in protective plastic flips.
  • Obverse: A beautiful portrait of a young Sioux Warrior is shown. Meant to be a modern interpretation of the classic Buffalo Nickel design, this portrait was designed by famous Western artist Matthew Lanz, and adopted by the Dakota Sioux as "White Star Boy". The feathers attached to the Medicine Wheel are in a beautiful proof-like finish, adding significantly to the eye appeal when holding this artistic round.
  • Reverse: Shown is a 19th Century Indian war shield. On the shield is a buffalo, tepee, and banner with the name of the tribe. The 8 Tepees represent the districts of the Oglala Sioux reservation.
  • These are non-circulating, legally authorized coins by a federally recognized sovereign nation, but are not legal tender.
  • Royalties from the sale of these coins assist Native American charities, counter severe poverty and raise tribal awareness.

Beautifully display your Sioux Indian coin by adding an attractive presentation box to your order.

The designs on these Silver coins represent the history and culture of Native American tribes, and the royalties aid in their continued existence as federally recognized tribes. Add this unique piece of Native American culture to your cart today!

The Sioux Warrior wears the Medicine Wheel, or Circle of Life. The Medicine Wheel is found in many tribes and in many parts of the world, but there are beliefs common to them all. The compass points North, South, East and West give four directions. Mother Earth is below and Father Sky is above, giving six directions in total. These six directions are also symbolized by animal fetish carvings.

Indigenous Native American tribes have tribal sovereignty in the United States, giving them the authority to govern themselves within the borders of the United States. These tribes are considered "domestic dependent nations," which is a form of parallel sovereignty within the U.S. constitutional framework.

This coin is an official commercial item that represents the tribe, but there is no legal face value, as tribes are not allowed to create their own currencies. This ability is reserved for the federal government.
