2015 Montana 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Timber Wolf Crow Proof
Celebrating the Crow Tribe of Montana, the 2015 Silver Timber Wolf Crow Proof Coin
In a landmark coin series launched in 2015, the Native American Mint is honoring fifty tribes with richly detailed commemorative coins. Each release features a state, a tribe associated with that state, as well as an animal considered part of the tribe’s history and culture. With proceeds of the coins going to support Native American charities, and the coins themselves serving to increase awareness of Native American history, the series has quickly become a collector favorite. In fact, these are the only American, non-US government coins available in the marketplace.
The third edition of this popular series is the Montana 2015 Silver Timber Wolf Crow Proof. Based in Billings, Montana today, the Crow Nation was once located as far east as the Ohio Valley, but were forced out of the area by the Iron Confederacy of the Ojibwe and Cree peoples, and pushed further west over time. Now numbering nearly 12,000 members, the Crow stands tall in central Montana—and so does the awe-inspiring timber wolf. Hunted to extinction in the 1930s, the wolf has been slowly reintroduced into the Montana wilderness and national parks since 1980. By the early 2000s, there were well over a hundred wolves in the state, with conservation efforts ongoing.
Now you can help honor both the Crow and the timber wolf with one remarkable coin, the Montana 2015 Silver Timber Wolf Crow Proof—available at GovMint.com.
Harassed and harried, but still standing strong
The Crow tribe was forced to move several times to survive Native American aggressors, and the timber wolf also was chased from its original territory. Now both coexist peacefully on the 2015 Silver Timber Wolf Crow Proof coin. Weighing 31.1 grams, your coin extends 39 mm in diameter to showcase its exceptional detail.
- THE WILD ISOLATION OF THE WOLF, THE RESILIENCE OF THE CROW -- The Crow people endured several evacuations, and the timber wolf literally was brought back from the brink of extinction. A testament to their will to survive, the 2015 Silver Timber Wolf Proof coin features an obverse of two Crow warriors on horseback, engaging in conversation. Stylized inscriptions on the obverse include "CROW," "999 SILVER," "ONE OUNCE," "ONE DOLLAR," and the date "2015." The reverse features a wolf at rest, its head thrust up as it howls its mournful cry. Also included on the reverse are the words "MONTANA TIMBER WOLF," "JAMUL SOVEREIGN NATION," and "AMERICA."
- OFFICIAL GEM PROOF CONDITION -- Your coin is graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in Gem Proof condition. Proof coins are struck with specially made dies, which results in a coin with mirror-bright surfaces and exceptional detail.
- PRODUCED BY THE NATIVE AMERICAN MINT -- Indigenous Native American tribes have tribal sovereignty, and the Native American Mint has the authority to strike these coins. However, while these coins have value for their silver content and their collectability, no coins struck by the Native American Mint are considered legal tender.
