Sacagawea Dollar (2000 - 2008)

Authorized by the United States $1 Coin Act of 1997, the new dollar coin replaces the current Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin, which has circulated since 1979. The new dollar coin will be gold in color, have the same diameter as the Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin, bear a smooth edge (in contrast to the reeded edge of the Susan B. Anthony Dollar Coin) and have a wider border than existing U.S. circulating coinage. The usage of a gold-colored alloy, the smooth edge and the wider border will ensure the new dollar coin is easily discernible for the visually challenged.

The design process eventually settled on an obverse design showing ¾ profile portrait of Sacagawea, a Shoshone Indian guide, who accompanied Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their Journey of Exploration across North America in 1804-6. In another first for American coinage the portrait on the obverse show Sacagawea carrying Jean Baptiste, her infant son strapped to her back. Six months pregnant when she joined the expedition, Sacagawea gave birth to the boy early in the journey and carried him to the end. The design was submitted and executed by Glenda Goodacre.

The reverse design is a slightly more traditional motif. It features a soaring eagle encircled by 17 stars. The stars represent the 17 state in the Union at the start of the 1804 Lewis and Clark expedition. The reverse design was executed by mint engraver Thomas D. Roger Sr.
