The Wyandot people are believed to have originated as the Huron Nation within the St. Lawrence Valley. The first appearance of the word “Wendat” came in the early 17th century among Iroquoian-speaking peoples. Following a treaty between the Huron Nation and British in 1760, some elements of the Huron Confederacy merged with the Petun to form the Wyandot people.
On the obverse side of 2019 1 oz Proof Silver Ohio Wyandot Northern Cardinal Coins is the image of a member of the Wyandot tribe. The emergence of the Wyandot in the late-18th century occurred in the areas of Ohio and Michigan near Lake Ontario. Many of the Wyandot people in the United States were eventually relocated away from their traditional homeland in Ohio to Kansas and Oklahoma.
The reverse of 2019 Proof Silver Ohio Wyandot Northern Cardinal Coins features the image of an adult cardinal. The cardinal species is a wide-ranging songbird found in southern Canada, the eastern United States from Maine to Texas, and through Central America from Mexico to Guatemala and Belize. The cardinal is well known for the bright-red plumage of the male of the species.
