Celebrate one of the grandest American adventures of all time with this set of limited-edition Choice Proofs! You’ll enjoy the one-year 2004 Lewis & Clark Silver commemorative dollar and 2000 first-year Sacagawea “golden” dollar. In 1804, the Lewis & Clark Expedition embarked on a journey to map the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase. As they wintered in North Dakota in 1805, Toussaint Charbonneau and his wife Sacagawea joined their team. Because Sacagawea was a Shoshone, she turned out to be crucial to their success, serving as a translator when they encountered Native American tribes and helping them obtain horses.
Struck in 90% silver for the 200th anniversary of Lewis & Clark’s journey, the low-mintage Proof shows the expedition’s leaders. On the reverse is the Indian Peace medal, similar to those given to Native American tribes. Prized because it’s a first-year coin, the 2000 Sacagawea dollar Proof features the expedition’s guide, Sacagawea, with a soaring eagle on the reverse. Embark on your own adventure with this historic set!
