The Native American Mint Series of Proof Silver Dollars features face values of One Dollar issued by the Native American Mint and backed by sovereign indigenous tribes. Though that gives the coins legal tender status among those nations, only the United States Mint has the authority to issue legal tender American currency.
The obverse of the 2020 1 oz Proof Silver Maryland Susquehannock Albatross coins includes the portrait of a tribal Susquehannock figure wearing the traditional tribal dress. This side of the coin features inscriptions of the name of the tribal people represented in the design, the metal content, the date mark, the face value, and the weight of the coin.
Susquehannock people are believed to have come to the area south of New York in the region where Maryland and Pennsylvania meet in the 13th century. Not much is known of the history of the Susquehannock prior to the arrival of Europeans as the civilization was largely in decline by the time the British took over North America. Swedish and Dutch explorers and traders previously had contact with the Susquehannock, and their records seem to suggest that the tribal population was between 5,000 and 7,000 people at its height.
On the reverse face of 2020 1 oz Proof Silver Maryland Susquehannock Coins is a depiction of the albatross. One of the largest birds in the world, the albatross is no longer native to the Northern Hemisphere of the world. However, some members of the species have become exiled migrants in the North Atlantic over the course of time.
