This 2020 Uncirculated six-coin set in the Jamul Nation’s Native American series honors the Lenape Nation. Its members once lived throughout Delaware and New Jersey. The common reverse design features a detailed bow and arrow, part of a range of weapons used in hunting and warfare. Each obverse shows detailed images uniquely associated with the Lenape daily life:
- 1¢ – Lenape women tended to the crops.
- 5¢ – Wolf Clan of the Delaware was the leading clan of three.
- 10¢ – Lenape trapped both fresh and saltwater fish for protein.
- 25¢ – Native American artwork emphasized the Lenape connection to water birds.
- 50¢ – Horses were valuable for transportation and trading.
- $1 – Chief Lapowinsa signed the 1737 Walking Purchase Agreement for the upper Delaware River Valley in northeastern Pennsylvania and northwestern New Jersey.
The Jamul Nation is officially recognized as a sovereign nation by the U.S. government and is legally authorized to issue its own commemorative coins, including this handsome set honoring the Lenape. It comes in a colorfully illustrated display card and with a certificate of authenticity. Affordably priced – and with a mintage limited to 25,000 – this offer is expected to go quickly. Order now.
