2009 Sacagawea Dollar Error PCGS MS65 Moy Signed
It's What's Missing That's Important: Hand-signed 2009 Native American Dollars with Missing Edge Lettering
In 2009, the Sacagawea Dollar series evolved into the Native American Dollar series, and went through significant updates. While the obverse image of Sacagawea remained, the reverse changed for the first time since the program began in 2000, and the U.S. Mint moved portions of the inscription to the edge of the coin. Unfortunately, the minting process for these coins didn't quite go as planned, and a few thousand pieces rolled off the production line without lettered edges.
The U.S. Mint's mistake is your boon, however, as you can secure these exceptionally rare 2009 Native American Missing Edge Lettering Error Dollars today, exclusively through GovMint.com!
Edge-lettered coins enjoy a rich history in the United States. Dating back to the 1790s, the technique of inscribing the edge of a coin was used to deter payers seeking to cheat their payees, by making it virtually impossible to shave down the edges of the coins. And, your 2009 Native American Dollar should have included the phrase "E PLURIBUS UNUM," the date "2009," the mint mark and 13 stars. Instead its edge is smooth. But, that error isn't the only thing that sets your coin apart. This Native American Dollar is encased in packaging that's been hand-signed by Edmund C. Moy, the last presidentially-confirmed director of the U.S. Mint!
The coin is comprised of a striking mix of Copper and Nickel, and features the Native American Shoshone woman, Sacagawea. Carrying her infant son Jean Baptiste on her back, she gazes over her right shoulder, and is surrounded by the inscriptions "LIBERTY," and "IN GOD WE TRUST." The reverse of the 2009 Native American Dollar depicts a Native American woman as she plants seeds in a field of corn, beans and squash. That particular mix of plants has a significance all its own. Known as the "Three Sisters" method, the Native American practice of planting corn, beans and squash in the same mound of dirt enhanced the productivity of each plant. Some estimates placed the increased productivity to as much as 30% when these plants were grown together! Also on the reverse is the inscription "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and the denomination "$1."
Your 2009 Native American Dollar has been graded MS65 by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), which assures you that your uncirculated coin will feature full mint luster, and will possess only minor distracting marks or imperfections. Add to that the hand-signed packaging of Edmund Moy and the lack of edge lettering, and you know you'll need to act fast to secure this extremely rare coin! Contact GovMint.com today.
