What’s the Significance of the Native American War Horse?

The Oglala Lakota Sioux Nation is one of the seven bands of the Lakota people, who are indigenous to the Great Plains region of North America. The Lakota have a long and proud history of warrior culture, and the War Horse was a crucial part of that tradition. The Lakota believed that horses were sacred animals that were given to them by the Great Spirit. They believed that horses had great power and wisdom, and that they were capable of carrying their riders to great heights of spiritual and physical strength.

 

The War Horse was especially important to the Lakota because it was used in battle. The Lakota were skilled horsemen, and they used their horses to move quickly and effectively on the battlefield. War Horses were trained to charge into battle fearlessly, and to carry their riders through difficult terrain. Each horse was also trained to be sensitive to its rider's commands, allowing the rider to use it as a powerful weapon against their enemies.

 

The War Horse was not just a tool for the Lakota, however. It was also a symbol of cultural identity and spiritual connection to the natural world. The Lakota believed that everything in the world was connected, and that they had a responsibility to live in harmony with the land and animals around them. The War Horse was seen as a living embodiment of this connection, and the Lakota treated their horses with great respect and care.



These Coins Are Beautiful Works of Art!

The breathtaking design on these coins is based on a breathtaking painting. The obverse features a depiction of the Sioux Native American “War Horse” Mustang taken directly from a painting created by renowned American equestrian artist Laurie Prindle, who has been winning awards for her artwork since she was a teen. She is inspired by the Morgan Horses that have shared her life for over 35 years on her ranch in Colorado. The design on this Oglala Lakota Sioux Nation War Horse Coin captures the spirit and symbolism of the War Horse in a beautiful and artistic way. The coin features a detailed image of a War Horse, with its mane and tail flowing in the wind. The reverse features a crest used by the Oglala Lakota Sioux nation. 

 

Struck in 99.9% Gold and Silver

These War Horse Coins are available struck in one ounce of 99.9% fine gold or two ounces of 99.9% fine silver. You can also get both coins in a 2-Pc. Set, which also includes a deluxe presentation box with the Lakota Sioux flag motif, an individually numbered mint certificate and postcard-sized print of the artwork, plus a personal, hand-signed letter from the artist Laurie Prindle herself!

 

Brilliant Uncirculated Surfaces/Antiqued Wash

Each coin comes with an exquisite, flawless, satiny Brilliant Uncirculated finish that brings out every intricate detail of the design elements.  To further enhance the look, the silver coins will have a special “antique wash” added to them which makes the details of each design even more prevalent. 


Gorgeous Ultra-High Relief Imagery

Each of these handsome coins feature spectacular Ultra-High Relief! In fact, each planchet has to be hand-fed into the minting press one at a time and stamped at least THREE TIMES to achieve the proper relief—with designs that rise above the surface 2.5 mm on the obverse of the gold coins; and 4.2 mm on the obverse of the silver coins. By way of comparison, on a Washington Quarter, George Washington’s head protrudes from the field less than .3 mm.
