Oglala Lakota Sioux Nation Coin Pays Tribute To First And Only Native American Note! Now that vibrant design is featured as the central motif on a legal-tender coin struck by the Oglala Lakota Sioux Nation as an incredible Antiqued Ultra High Relief masterpiece. One Of The Most Popular Currency Notes Of All Time. It features the portrait of. Running Antelope-who was a close advisor to the great Sitting Bull. As one of four principal “shirt wearers” or chiefs during the Plains Indians Wars, Running Antelope eventually had a falling out with Sitting Bull because he believed that compromise with the whites was in his people’s best interests. The note caused some ill will among the tribes of the Great Plains when it was issued as it depicted Running Antelope as a chief wearing a Pawnee headdress as the original Lakota headdress was too tall for the engraving. Apparently, the engravers at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing weren’t aware that the Lakota and Pawnee were mortal enemies on the Great Plains! Features Jaw-Dropping Ultra High Relief Detail. This dazzling tribute to that famous note was struck in two full ounces of highly pure 99.9% fine silver and features jaw-dropping Ultra High Relief (UHR) detail on BOTH sides. To achieve this level of relief, each planchet was hand-fed into the minting press one at a time and stamped at least THREE TIMES! And to make that detail stand out even more, each coin was liberally treated with a unique antique finish that adds a depth and dimension to the stoic portrait that makes it appears as if it were a classic bas relief sculpture you’d expect to see only in a museum. This process is typically done by hand, meaning that no two coins are exactly alike! Only Limited Quantities Are available!
