#NewIssue—The U.S. Mint has commemorated athlete Jim Thorpe’s contributions to American sports and culture on the reverse of its 2018 Native American $1 coin. The coins, which feature circulating finishes, have never been placed into circulation. They were minted at the Denver and Philadelphia Mints. This year’s reverse design depicts Thorpe while the foreground highlights his achievements in football and as an Olympian. Inscriptions are “JIM THORPE,” “WA-THO- HUK” (Thorpe’s native name), “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” and “$1.” To continue reading, click the link in our bio.
