Lewis, Clark & Sacagawea Proof Dollars
The explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark decided to explore and map parts of
America in 1804-6. They met the Lemhi Shoshone woman known as Sacagawea, who
even though she had just had a child, agreed to help them. At one point a boat capsized and the
journals and records fell into the water. It was Sacagawea who rescued these documents.
The island nation of Fiji issued a commemorative Dollar to honour the trio in 2015. It has
the 3 standing together and the reverse has the coat of arms of Fiji. It is gold plated copper and
in choice Proof condition.
The United States also issued a small sized dollar coin, but just to honour the Indian maiden
Sacagawea. This is also struck in a yellow metal and in Proof condition. We are offering the
Fiji and the American proof dollars as a pair, as it seems best that way. So you get the Proof
dollar from Fiji and the proof dollar from the United States.
