Crazy Horse lived a short life, but made a huge impact on 19th-century America. Born in 1840, he quickly rose in the ranks of his Oglala band of Lakota. As a young man, he took up arms against the United States in response to the continued encroachment of white settlers on indigenous lands in the American Plains.
The Lakota people, known to some as the Teton Sioux, represented one of the three member tribes of the Great Sioux Nation. Historically speaking, the Lakota ranged throughout North and South Dakota, as well as small portions of neighboring states like Nebraska, Minnesota, and Montana. Today, there are some 115,000 registered members of the tribe living in North Dakota and South Dakota.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Lakota Crazy Horse Silver Round is a front-facing bust of Crazy Horse. The front-facing relief captures a depiction of a peaceful Crazy Horse wearing his indigenous tribal clothes with a tribal symbol encircling his figure from behind. The name of his tribe is inscribed above the bust. Crazy Horse was an active fighter during the Black Hills War, including major roles in the Fetterman Fight and the Battle of Little Bighorn.
The reverse face of 1 oz Lakota Crazy Horse Silver Rounds includes the image of an American bison. No animal was more important, spiritually and economically, to the indigenous tribes of the American Plains than the bison. Known as the buffalo in America, the bison in this image is reminiscent of the design James Earle Fraser created for the United States Mint in 1913 to grace the US nickel. The bison is shown in left-profile relief standing on a mound of dirt.
These 1 oz Lakota Crazy Horse Silver Rounds are available to you in brand-new condition from the mint. Each one of the rounds is available with a protective plastic flip.
