“Trail of Tears” Dollars Issued by the Sovereign Nation of the Shawnee Tribe

Continuing a coin series that began in 2002, Panda America is happy to announce the release of the 2010 Silver Dollars issued by the Sovereign Nation of the Shawnee Tribe. The 2010 issue is a tribute to the thousands of Native American men, women and children who died during their removal from their native lands - via “The Trail of Tears” - and the aftermath. Each coin is 1 oz. of pure silver, designed by award-winning medalist Alex Shagin. They are available from authorized distributor Panda America at the official issue price of $29 for Brilliant Uncirculated quality and $39 in Gem Proof quality. Each coins comes in a capsule and with a certificate of authenticity.

Shawnee 2010 Silver Proof and BU Coins

The history of the "Trail of Tears" is very much a part of American History: In 1830, President Andrew Jackson wrote to the Cherokees: "My friends, circumstances render it impossible that you can flourish in the midst of a civilized community. You have but one remedy within your reach, and that is to remove to the west. And the sooner you do this, the sooner you will commence your career of improvement and prosperity." And in 1838, President Martin Van Buren ordered U.S. Army troops under the command of Gen. Winfield Scott to began rounding up the Cherokees and moving them into stockades in North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee. Published reports online from the Trail of Tears National Historic Trail have stated that “in all some 90 thousand Indians were removed to the West, including the Delaware, the Ottawa, Shawnee, Pawnee and Potawatomi, the Sauk and Fox, Miami and Kickapoo, the Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek and Seminole. Some reluctantly agreed to move. Others were driven from their homes at bayonet point. Almost two thousand of them died along the route they remembered as the Trail of Tears … and mortality rates for the entire removal and its aftermath were substantial, totaling approximately 8,000.” It is this sad march of the Indians that the Shawnee commemorate with this beautiful coin for 2010.

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, 2010. As one of the most popular coin series' that we carry, we expect these coins to quickly become true collectors items.
