The Sacagawea Native American Dollar
was authorized to be redesigned in the Native American $1 Coin Act, passed in 2007. The act called for the one daollar coin to be redesigned to depict "images celebrating the important contributions made by Indian trabes and individual Native Americans to the development of the United States..." The redesigned Native American Dollars kept the obverse design largely intact, although the date and inscription E PLURIBUS UNUM were moved to the edge of the coin.
The first coin in the Native American series was issued in 2009 and designed by Mint sculptor-engraver Norman E. Nemeth, and the subject is the spread of Three Sisters Agriculture. It depicts a Native American woman planting seeds in a field populated with corn, beans, and squash. The obverse of the 2009 Native American Dollar
features the same portrait of Sacagawea and her infant child as previous issues, designed by Glenna Goodacre.
