The Shawnee were considered semi-migratory in the colonial era preceding American Independence. Shawnee tribes once inhabited regions that included historic homelands in Ohio and Kentucky, as well as West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania, western Maryland, Alabama, South Carolina, Indiana, and Illinois. Following the Revolutionary War, the westward expansion of European-American settlers pushed the Shawnee to Missouri and Kansas. The tribes were eventually forcibly removed to Indian Territory in Oklahoma.
On the obverse of 2020 1 oz Proof Kentucky Shawnee Squirrel Silver Coins is a bust of a member of this indigenous tribe. Like many of the tribes that lived along the Ohio River Valley and the east coast of North America, the Shawnee came from ethnic groups that spoke Algonquian dialects.
The reverse of 2020 Proof Kentucky Shawnee Squirrel Silver Coins includes the image of a common squirrel. The family of squirrels includes small and medium-sized rodents that consist of tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, flying squirrels, and prairie dogs. You can find squirrels natively in the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa. Humans introduced the species to Australia.
All Proof Silver Dollar Coins in this Native American Mint series are backed by sovereign indigenous tribes, but the legal tender status of the coins is not recognized by the federal government. In the US, only the United States Mint has the legal authority to produce legal tender coins.
