Coins with these proof visuals have satin-like, frosted design strikes overlaying a mirrored field for brilliant contrast between the two features of the coin. The coins in this series ship with a protective plastic capsule. Although issued by a sovereign indigenous nation, these coins are not legal tender in the US. The United States Mint is the only mint with the authority to strike American legal tender coins.
Regardless of the status of the Proof Silver Dollars from the Native American Mint, the quality of the strike and the diversity of the program is as impressive as anything from a sovereign mint like the US Mint. These coins are just the latest issues in a long-running collection that started in 2015 and aims to bring broad recognition to the many diverse tribes that have lived in North America for thousands of years.
The obverse of the 2021 Proof Silver Utah Paiute Rocky Mountain Elk Coins features a front-facing effigy of a tribal figure from the Paiute. Historically, the Paiute tribe consisted of the Northern Paiute bands and the Southern Paiute bands. The Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah is federally recognized and is linked to the Southern Paiute people and Ute tribes from southwestern Utah.
On the reverse face of 2021 1 oz Silver Utah Rocky Mountain Elk Coins is a depiction of two bull elks. Male elks will battle one another during mating season, in particular, to pair up with female elk.
