Each of the 2019 1 oz Proof California Kumeyaay Grizzly Bear Silver Coins in this product listing comes to you with protective plastic capsules. The coins do come with a One Dollar face value, but under federal law, in the US the United States Mint is the only entity authorized to strike legal tender. With that said, the Native American Mint issues these coins on behalf of the sovereign tribal nations of North America.
The Kumeyaay people number some 3,200 people in the modern era. Historically, their range includes the southern portions of California and the Baja California peninsula of Mexico. The tribe was originally known in Spanish as Kumiai, with Kumeyaay representing the Anglicized spelling of the tribes name. Languages typically spoken by members of the tribe include Ipai, Kumeyaay, Tipai, English, and Spanish.
On the obverse of the 2019 1 oz Proof California Kumeyaay Grizzly Bear Silver Coin is the image of a member from the Kumeyaay tribe. The Kumeyaay are believed to have settled in their historic range as far back as 12,000 years ago. Around 7000 BCE, two cultural traditions emerged within the Kumeyaay. The California Coast and Valley Tradition were one and the other was the Desert Tradition.
The reverse of 2019 California Kumeyaay Grizzly Bear Coins features the image of one of North Americas largest predators. The grizzly represents a large population of brown bears that live in North America. The bears are scientifically known as brown bears and got the name grizzly from the expedition of Lewis & Clark.
