An actual form of currency within the Lakota Sioux tribe, each coin contains one AVDP ounce of .999 fine copper and arrives in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
On the obverse of each coin is the bust of Oglala warrior Crazy Horse (c.1840 -1877). Known in his native tongue as Tasunke Witko / His Horse Is Crazy or His Horse Is Spirited / Crazy Horse has become one of the most revered figures in American Indian history. Because he worked tirelessly to preserve the Lakota way of life, he has become an American icon, his likeness portrayed on the massive Crazy Horse Memorial, carved into a mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
On the reverse of each coin is an image of the American bison. An integral facet of Lakota culture, the buffalo stands below the words, Currency of the Free and Independent Nation. The Lakota, also known as Teton, are part of a confederation of seven Sioux tribes who dwell in the Dakotas. Today, there are roughly 70,000 Lakota people living within the United States and Canada, and as a semi-autonomous nation, they have actualized a form of independent currency, hence the creation of Lakota Nation gold, silver, and copper coins.
