The Passamaquoddy tribe had no written history prior to the arrival of Europeans on the North American continent. Historically calling the regions of Maine in the United States and New Brunswick in Canada, the tribe was part of the loose Wabanaki Confederacy among the Algonquin-speaking tribes that inhabited this region prior to the arrival of Europeans.
The name Passamaquoddy in the Algonquin tongue literally translates as Pollock-spearer, which speaks to the history of the tribe living off the abundance of fish from the Atlantic Coast of North America, particularly in the New England region of the US. Today, there are some 3,576 tribal members living who identify as Passamaquoddy, with the vast majority living in Maine in the US.
On the obverse of the 2019 1 oz Proof Maine Passamaquoddy Moose Silver Coin, youll find the stoic portrait of a tribal elder from the Passamaquoddy. The majority of the living descendants of this tribe live in Washington County, Maine. They are split between the Indian Township Reservation and the Passamaquoddy Pleasant Point Reservation.
The reverse of 2019 Proof Maine Passamaquoddy Moose Coins includes the image of a moose. The moose is a large and powerful mammal. In fact, the moose is the largest and heaviest member of its extant species in the deer family. Moose are found throughout North America, from the Western United States through the Midwest, to Maine and up into various provinces of Canada.
All coins in the Proof Native American Silver Dollar Series are struck by the Native American Mint with a One Dollar face value on behalf of the tribe featured on the obverse. The coins are not, however, legal tender in the US. Only the United States Mint has the power to issue fiat currency in the United States.
