Under US federal law, only Congress can assign denominations and legal tender status for American coinage. Similarly, only the United States Mint has the authority to produce legal tender banknotes and coins for the nation. However, indigenous tribal nations with federal recognition are considered sovereign nations within the United States.
The Jamul Sovereign Nation issues all of the coins in the Proof Native American Dollar Series on behalf of other tribes across North America. The Native American Mint is controlled by the Jamul Sovereign Nation and works on behalf of the tribes to produce this beautiful series representing the indigenous people of North America.
On the obverse side of the 2020 1 oz Proof Silver Massachusetts Mohican Wild Turkey is the image of a tribal figure in front-facing relief. This Mohican tribal figure wears both ceremonial dress and ceremonial paint on his face. The Mohicans historically lived in western Massachusetts and the Hudson River Valley’s upper tidal range in New York. Today, living members predominantly reside in Wisconsin.
The reverse field of 2020 Proof Silver Massachusetts Mohican Wild Turkeys depicts the upland ground bird now known as the turkey. Native to North America, this particular species has two extant members alive today and is the same species as the domesticated turkey. Males are known as toms and females as hens. A male is featured in the background of this design with a hen in the foreground.
