Like many other Native American leaders and well-known warriors of the 19th century, Crazy Horse was best known for his resistance to American expansionism. Crazy Horse was a warrior with the Lakota people of the Dakotas who fought during the Black Hills War. His reason for taking up arms against the United States was rooted in the encroachment on indigenous lands of American settlers. His accomplishments on the field of battle earned him the respect of his own people and his enemies.
The obverse of 1 oz Silver Lakota Crazy Horse Rounds includes a bust of Crazy Horse in front-facing relief. This artistic depiction of the warrior depicts a peaceful vision of the man. This portrait of Crazy Horse shows two tall, upright feathers at the back of his head, long flowing hair, traditional tribal clothing, and an artistic background circle framing his figure. The word “Lakota” is inscribed above his head.
On the reverse side of Silver Lakota Crazy Horse Rounds, you will find a depiction of the American bison. Also known as the buffalo, the American bison is the largest land mammal in North America and can still be found in the wilds of the American West and certain regions of Canada.
Today, the Lakota people largely inhabit the same region of the United States the tribe historically inhabited. The people of the Lakota tribe are part of the Siouan language family and were members of the Great Sioux Nation along with two other major tribes. Crazy Horse was a member of the Oglala band of the Lakota people.
