Why buy this 2018 Native American Dollar 1 oz. Silver Nevada Shoshone Desert Tortoise Proof?

This 1 oz. Silver Proof 2018 Nevada Shoshone Desert Tortoise is the first issue of the Native American Dollar series for 2018 and the fourteenth overall. The series celebrates Native American tribes who had ancestral lands in each state, as well as animals that are found in that state. The coin has a face value of $1, but it is not legal tender because it was issued by the Shoshone tribe rather than the U.S. government. The coin was struck at the Native American Mint from .999 fine silver.

Stunning Shoshone Design

On the obverse is a Shoshone tribesman in traditional dress. He faces to the left side of the coin and wears a headpiece with thick, long feathers. "SHOSHONE" is inscribed at the top, while other inscriptions along the rim include the coin's purity, date, face value and weight.

On the reverse is a desert tortoise, which can be found in the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts, which are in the American Southwest and the northwestern part of Mexico. It stands with its head raised out of its shell. Inscriptions on this face include "NEVADA DESERT TORTOISE," "AMERICA," and "JAMUL SOVEREIGN NATION," where the Native American Mint is located.
