Each of the 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Oklahoma Cheyenne Black Widow Spider Coins in this listing comes with unique proof visuals. The satin, matte proof of the coin boasts frosted finishes on the designs and mirrored fields. The coins are individually packaged inside plastic capsules. While the coins have a One Dollar face value, it is not considered a legal tender unit in the United States.
The Jamul Sovereign Nation issues coins through the Native American Mint. While federally-recognized tribes in the United States are considered sovereign nations, this does not grant the power to issue coins with legal tender face values. Only the United States Mint has that power in the US.
The obverse side of 2021 Proof Silver Oklahoma Cheyenne Black Widow Spiders features a depiction of a Cheyenne tribal figure. Like other releases in the series, the figure is depicted wearing ceremonial dress.
Cheyenne people once lived in the region we now know as the US state of Minnesota. When the first Europeans arrived in this region of North America, the Cheyenne were among the first indigenous tribes those explorers encountered. Part of the Algonquian language family, the Cheyenne are culturally and genetically linked to nations such as the Arapaho and Blackfoot, among others. By the middle and late 19th century, the bands of Cheyenne living in the Great Plains split and eventually ended up settling in Montana and Oklahoma, with the latter region having a larger population.
On the reverse face of 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Oklahoma Cheyenne Black Widow Spiders is a depiction of the deadly spider. The black widow comes from a broad genus of spiders that include brown widow spiders, the European black widow spiders, and the Australian redback black widow.
