Since 2009, the United States Mint has minted and issued $1 coins featuring designs meant to, "[celebrate] the important contributions made by Indian tribes and individual Native Americans to the history and development of the United States." The obverse design retains the Sacagawea portrait design first produced on dollar coins in 2000. The design was altered to only contain the inscriptions LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST. The date, mint mark, and the motto E PLURIBUS UNUM were moved to the edge of the coin, similar to the Presidential Dollar Coin Series. The reverse design changes each year of issue to celebrate specific contributions of Indian tribes, or individual Native Americans, and contain the inscriptions $1 and UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
The 2009 Native American $1 Coin reverse features a Native American woman planting seeds in a field of corn, beans and squash and the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and $1.
Until the conclusion of the Presidential $1 Coin Program, the coins will be issued, to the maximum extent practicable, in chronological order of the events or lives of the persons being featured on the reverse design. In general, five distinct $1 coins will be issued each year -- four Presidential $1 Coins and one Native American $1 Coin. After the completion of the Presidential $1 Coin Program, the Native American $1 Coin Program will continue, featuring designs in any order determined to be appropriate by the Secretary of the Treasury after consultation with the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, the House of Representatives Congressional Native American Caucus and the National Congress of American Indians.
