Dollar, Sacagawea (2000-present)

The Sacagawea dollar, called by the U.S. Mint the Sacagawea Golden Dollar Coin and beginning in 2009 the Native American $1 Coin, along with the Presidential Dollar series, is one of the two current United States dollar coins. This coin was first minted by the United States Mint in 2000 and depicts the Shoshone woman Sacagawea, a member of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, carrying her son Jean Baptiste Charbonneau. The coin's artist, Glenna Goodacre, used a 22-year-old Shoshone woman named Randy'L He-dow Teton as the model for the young Sacagawea.
Originally, since there was no known portrait of Sacagawea, the committee that chose Sacagawea for the coin specified the figure as depicted as a Native American woman inspired by Sacagawea.
