Historically located across the Midwest and Western Plains of the United States, the Siouan people once called other regions of the United States home. The Santee people still reside in small numbers around the present-day town of Santee, South Carolina, one of the few remaining Siouan tribes living outside of the American Plains.

The Santee tribe are associated with other tribes from the historical Siouan-language speakers. Prior to the arrival of Europeans on the North American continent, many of the Siouan tribes had already begun migrating to the present-day states of the Great Plains such as Minnesota, Iowa, the Dakotas, and beyond.
However, looking back hundreds of years prior to the arrival of Europeans, earthwork mounds from the broader Mississippian culture were discovered along the Atlantic Coast of the modern-day United States that show Siouan-speaking tribes in the region that now consists of the US states of Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
A member of the Santee people is depicted in the obverse design of the 2021 1 oz Proof South Carolina Bottlenose Dolphin Silver Coin. The Santee may come from the Siouan-language speakers, but those located in what is now South Carolina also have connections to tribes from the Gulf Coast region. This includes the Cherokee and Creek people.
The inquisitive, playful dolphin is featured on the reverse of 2021 Proof South Carolina Bottlenose Dolphin Silver Coins. The design of the dolphin shown here captures a member of the bottlenose family. These mammals are the most common member of their family of ocean-dwelling dolphins. There are three particular species of bottlenose found around the world.
These 2021 1 oz Proof South Carolina Santee Bottlenose Dolphin Silver Coins are available to purchase with satin-proof visuals. This indicates a coin with satin, frosted design elements and mirrored background fields. The coins come with an individual plastic capsule. Though the coins have a face value, these specimens are not legal tender. Only the US Mint can strike legal tender US coins.
