Why add the 2016-S $1 Coin and Currency Set to your collection?
The 2016-S $1 Coin & Currency Set honors the contributions of the Native American Code Talkers during World War I and II, when the use of Code Talkers marked the first time that messages in native languages were used to confuse an enemy during wartime. The 2106 Code Talkers Dollar coin is the eighth in a series depicting an important part of Native American culture. The set has a mintage limit of 75,000, and includes one 2016 Sacagawea Code Talkers Dollar Coin struck in San Francisco, and, from one of twelve Federal Reserve Banks, a $1 series 2013 note with a low serial number.
Symbolic imagery graces the $1 coin.
The coin reverse, by Thomas D. Rogers, features two feathers and helmets from WW I and WW II forming a "V," to symbolize victory, unity, and the importance of the role of the code talkers, with inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "$1," "WWI," "WWII," and "CODE TALKERS." The obverse features the portrait of Sacagawea with her child, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, designed by artist Glenna Goodare for the original Sacagawea Dollar coin in 2000, along with the inscriptions "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
