Accented with a Native American Sioux in the brightly colored attire worn for the Hoop Dance, this 2017 Proof is struck in one ounce of 99.9% pure silver. During the modern Hoop Dance, dancers use multiple hoops – as many as 40 – to signify elements of life and to portray animals (they symbolize wings or tails). With no beginning or end, hoops represent the circle of life and are handmade by the dancers.
Unique, with a captivating colorized Hoop Dancer design on the obverse, this silver dollar displays the Oglala Sioux flag with 8 teepees for the 8 reservation districts on the reverse. The Sioux tribe is officially recognized as a sovereign nation by the United States and is legally authorized to issue its own commemorative coins. With only 999 available worldwide, you’ll want to get this issue right away!
