Get this new 2019 set in the popular Native American series that honors the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Known for their independence, Seminoles adapted to the influx of Europeans by establishing trading posts, exchanging pelts and handcrafted baskets for cloth, guns and tools.
The common reverse design features a chickee, a shelter supported by posts with a raised floor, thatched roof and open sides that was suited for life in the Everglades. Every obverse is marked with iconic images uniquely associated with Seminole history and heritage:
- 1¢ Basket – made from native grasses and leaves of cane, palm and palmetto plants
- 5¢ Strainer – two-tier system for sifting arrowroot to make flour
- 10¢ Doll – toy made of palmetto fiber
- 25¢ Alligator – source of protein, also wrestled as a rite of skill
- 50¢ Seminole woman with palm frond – versatile leaf used for thatching and weaving
- $1 Seminole Chief – Tuko-See-Mathla lived in the early half of the19th century
Officially recognized as a sovereign nation by the U.S. government, the Jamul Nation is legally authorized to issue its own commemorative coins, including this set honoring the Seminole. It is limited in mintage to 25,000. Affordably priced, it comes in a colorfully illustrated display card and with a certificate of authenticity. This is a great opportunity to add to a collection or start one.
