- Product Details
Part of the new Proof Silver State Dollars program, this round is from the Native American Mint and is part of a series that features a state, a tribe associated with that state (often from that exact area) and an animal integral to the tribe.
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.
- Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
- Coins come in a protective plastic capsule.
- Obverse: An incredible portrait of an Kiowa Indian in typical ceremonial dress. Around the rim is the weight of 1 troy oz, the purity and the year.
- Reverse: The animals in this series are selected based off animals the tribes would have come into contact with and animals associated with each state. The Wyoming state coin features the horned lizard.
- These are non-circulating, legally authorized coins by a federally recognized sovereign nation, but are not legal tender.

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.
Wyoming designated the horned lizard as the official state reptile in 1993. Also commonly called "horned toads" because of their rounded, toadlike shape, the horned lizard is a genus of short-tailed, short-legged lizards in the iguana family, about 3-5 inches in length. They feed on ants and other insects.
Horned lizards can have an intimidating appearance because of the hornlike spines on the back of the head and sides of its body, but they are actually docile and gentle in nature. When a horned lizard feels threatened, it flattens and freezes in place, trying to blend with the ground (it can also spray an intruder with blood from the corners of its eyes in defense).
