Today, the Shawnee nations predominantly reside in Oklahoma, the former Indian Territory established in the early 19th century by the federal government as a place to relocate indigenous tribes. Although there are 7,584 enrolled members in the modern Shawnee nations, there are some 14,000 in total that self-identify as Shawnee. Many of those who self-identify as Shawnee still live in the various states that make up the historical homelands of the Shawnee.
All 2020 1 oz Proof Silver Kentucky Shawnee Squirrel Coins available here today have proof visuals that include frosted designs and mirrored background fields. The coins are individually offered inside of protective plastic capsules. The Native American Mint cannot legally issue coins with USD values, as the United States Mint has the sole legal authority to do so. However, the sovereign indigenous nations that back these coins do support the assigned value.
On the obverse of 2020 Proof Silver Kentucky Shawnee Squirrel coins is the image of an indigenous tribal member.
