2009 S Proof Native American "Agriculture" Golden Dollar $1
Honor Native American contributions with this low mintage series. This year commemorates the contributions of Native American agriculture to the United States.
Native American culture emphasizes living with the land and understanding the surrounding natural resources. When Europeans first arrived in the “New World,” one of the largest contributions and benefits of their relationships with Native Americans was the sharing of agricultural information. Their skill in agriculture provided the margin of survival for the early European colonists, either through trade or direct sharing of expertise, and agricultural products native to the Americas quickly became staples throughout Europe.
