2011 Shawnee Coins Feature Chief Kish-Kallo-Wa & The Great Comet of 1811


Shawnee Nation 2011 Gold & Silver Coins NOW AVAILABLE!!

Panda America is happy to announce the release of the Shawnee Nation 2011 Gold & Silver Coins!  Three different coins have been minted, all of which are 99.9% pure: two 1-ounce Silver Coins (Proof and BU) and a 1/5-ounce Gold Coin (Proof). 
 
The 1-ounce Silver Coins feature The Great Comet of 1811, depicting a Shawnee Indian looking at a shooting comet in the sky.  In 1811, one of the brightest comets ever seen could be seen in the sky for 260 days, and was appropriately called The Great Comet of 1811. However it was also nicknamed “Tecumseh’s Comet” in the United States—referring to the war between the United States and the American Indian confederacy led by the charismatic Shawnee leader Tecumseh—that concluded with William Henry Harrison’s victory at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811.  The observation of the Great Comet of 1811 by Native American warriors, including Tecumseh, was viewed as an omen of good luck.  The Year 2011 is the 200th Anniversary of the Great Comet's appearance. 
 
Chief Kish-kallo-wa is featured on the 1/5-ounce Gold Proof coin.  Kish-Kallo-Wa was a highly regarded chief of the Shawnee tribe, who participated in several major battles during his lifetime, the most significant of which was the 1774 Battle of Point Pleasant.  In 1836, Chief Kish-kallo-wa was between 85 and 90 years old, and was still the head of the Shawnee nation.  He was “a man of many battles and of great notoriety. He fought his first battle at the age of 17, and made himself conspicuous by his bravery; his family is distinguished; he is one of seven brothers, all renowned warriors.” 

 
The Shawnee Nation gold & silver coins are legal-tender & feature a reverse side with the crest of the Shawnee Nation as well as the year of issue, 2011.
