The coins from the Native American Mint’s Proof Silver Dollar Series each feature unique designs relevant to the tribe represented.

The reverse features a common animal species from that same region significant to the culture and lifestyle of the tribe as well.
Ojibwa tribes, also known as Ojibwe or Chippewa peoples, were among the first to sign treates with European and Canadian leaders before allowing European settlers into their homelands. In fact, the Ojibwa adopted guns from the British by 1745, allowing them to defeat the Dakota tribes and push them south and west into Minnesota and the Dakotas, and out of Canada.
The obverse of all 2017 1 oz Proof Silver Michigan Ojibwa Swan Coins includes the effigy of a member of the Ojibwa nation. Ojibwa people were well known throughout the Great Lakes Region of Canada and the United States for their birch bark canoes and cultivation of wild rice. While the majority of Ojibwa people live in Canada today, there are some registered 170,742 Ojibwa in the US today.
On the reverse of the Ojibwa Michigan Swan Coins you’ll find the graceful, beautiful depiction of a swan. The swan is the largest extant member of the waterfowl family known as the Anatidae, and are also one of the largest species of flying bird. While commonly known for their white plumage, swans in the Southern Hemisphere actually have a mix of black-and-white plumage.
