Puebloan culture dates back thousands of years in North America to roughly 7000 BCE. By the time Spanish explorers first encountered Pueblo people in the Four Corners area during the Pueblo IV period, these indigenous people had moved from living in pit houses and cliff dwellings to constructing impressive communities with adobe-plastered stone structures. These cities included large communal rooms, enclosed plazas, and larger homes than other indigenous cultures.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Colorado Pueblo Bighorn Coins is the image of a member of the Puebloan culture. The term Pueblo refers to the communities that members of this indigenous culture built and not one specific tribe. The Spanish explorers that encountered these cities used the Spanish term for a village to refer to the structures and people inhabiting them. Numerous tribes share Puebloan language and cultural backgrounds.
The reverse of 2019 Proof Silver Colorado Pueblo Bighorn Coins includes the depiction of a bighorn sheep. This species of sheep is known for the pair of massive horns on the heads of males that can weigh up to 30 lbs in total. There are three distinct subspecies of bighorn sheep alive in the world today.
