The first Sacagawea dollars were issued in 2000, kicking off the new millennium. These small, golden colored dollars were produced with the aim of reviving the $1 coin in commerce while also avoiding the dismal failure of its earlier predecessor, the Susan B. Anthony dollar. The hype surrounding the release of the new coin led to its initial popularity, yet its use in commerce quickly faded. After just two years of producing circulation strikes, the U.S. Mint took the hint and began issuing the coin solely for collectors. Our certified MS-67 specimens boast near perfect surfaces, burning luster and are sure to enhance any collection. Grade certification by NGC or PCGS.
