The Iowa people, also known historically as the Ioway, are genetically linked to the Sioux tribes that spread out across the Midwest, Upper Midwest, and into the northern Rocky Mountains. Historically speaking, the Iowa people once covered vast stretches of the American Midwest from the state of Iowa, named for them, to Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
On the obverse face of the 2018 1 oz Proof Iowa Fox Rabbit Silver Coin is the image of a tribal member, along with engravings of the weight, metal content, purity, face value, and date of issue for the coin. The name of the tribal nation is also featured above the depiction of the tribal member. Today, there are only two federally recognized Iowa tribes remaining. The Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma and the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska have a combined population today of 2,567 people.
The reverse side of the 2018 Proof Iowa Fox Rabbit Silver Coin depicts the image of a jackrabbit. The jackrabbits found throughout Iowa and the greater Midwest range in size from 6 to 10 lbs when fully grown and can run as fast as 40 miles per hour.
