A Seminole warrior wearing the traditional turban gazes from this 2016 one ounce 99.9% pure silver dollar. Alligators, like the one shown on the reverse, played an important part in the tribe’s history. In the 1800s, as European settlers pushed into northern Florida, the Seminoles migrated into the Everglades where they lived with alligators and other creatures. At one time, the tribe had an Alligator clan, but because children inherit their mother’s clan, when the last female member died, the clan name died too. The Seminole are famous for alligator wrestling and many people stop at the reservations to watch.
Unique, with captivating frosty designs against a mirrorlike surface, this silver Proof coin was struck by the Jamul tribe, which is recognized as a sovereign nation by the U. S. government and is legally authorized to issue its own commemorative coins. This silver dollar honoring the Seminoles makes a great addition to your collection!
