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 dollar coin to be redesigned to depict "images celebrating the important contributions made by Indian tribes 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 reverse of the 2013 Native American Sacagawea Dollar was designed by Susan Gamble and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill. The design represents the "Treaty With the Delawares", which was the first formal treaty between the new United States and a Native American tribe. It was signed on September 17, 1778 at Fort Pitt, Pennsylvania. The design features a turkey, howling wolf, and turtle, which are animal symbols of the clans of the Delaware tribe. The three animals are surrounded by a semi-circle of thirteen stars, which represent the original 13 Colonies. The inscriptions read “United States of America”, “$1″, and “Treaty With the Delawares 1778″.
