Announcing the Release of the 2008 Shawnee Indian Nation Silver Coins!


Panda America is happy to announce the release of the 2008 Shawnee Indian Nation Silver Proof & BU Coins!  With a striking design on a pure 99.9% silver coin, the Shawnee Nation series has fast become one of the most highly anticipated and popular products we carry.

The Shawnee Nation 2008  Point Pleasant Silver Coins

The striking design features the Battle of Point Pleasant on the obverse. This battle took place on October 10, 1774 between the Shawnee people trying to defend their territory in Ohio and the Virginia militia.  After a long and deadly battle, which included hand to hand warfare and went on through the night, Chief Cornstalk of the Shawnee ultimately retreated and the Virginia militia compelled him to agree to a treaty that ceded the lands south of Ohio to Virginia.  The Battle of Point Pleasant is noteworthy for its involvement from Chief Cornstalk, also known as Chief Hokoleskwa, as he was a prominent leader of the Shawnee people.  Born in 1720, his name means "blade of corn", and he is unique among Shawnee Chiefs in that he was at peace with the settlers and actually tried to warn them about militant Native Americans.  He is commonly viewed as a law abiding Native American Hero, after being a warrior in the beginning of his life.  He is the Shawnee Chief most responsible for the Native Americans abiding to treaties with the settlers, & he fought heroically during the Battle of Point Pleasant.  Three years after the Battle of Point Pleasant, as retaliation to one of his militant Shawnee Native Americans killing an American soldier, he was killed.  He is buried at Point Pleasant, West Virginia.

The Shawnee Nation 1-ounce silver coin features a reverse side with the crest of the Shawnee Nation as well as the year of issue, 2008.

As one of the most popular coin series' that we carry, we expect these coins to quickly become true collectors items.
