2015 issue in the one ounce 99.9% silver dollar series featuring Native American tribes and indigenous animals. It honors the Navajo, the largest federally recognized Native American tribe in the U.S., mainly located in Arizona and New Mexico. The Navajo call themselves Dine, which in their language means "the People." Their native language was so difficult to learn that Navajo Code Talkers used it during WWIIto successfully communicate secret messages. Today there is a memorial for military veterans at Window Rock, the capital of the Navajo tribe.
Struck by the Jamul Indians, recognized as a sovereign nation by the U.S. government and legally authorized to issue their own commemorative coins, this handsome Proof shows a Navajo man wearing the traditional headband, wrapped in the blankets they are so famous for. The reverse shows a cougar – a symbol of protection, which according to legend, was sent to guard the turquoise girl. A magnificent tribute to the Native American people and wildlife, and great addition to a western-themed collection, order yours today!
