The United States Mint released the design that will appear on the reverse (tails) of the Native American $1 Coin next year.
The coin will honor Sequoyah of the Cherokee Nation, creator of the Cherokee language, the U.S. Mint said in a news release.
The 2017 reverse features a profiled likeness of Sequoyah writing “Sequoyah from Cherokee Nation” in syllabary along the border of the design.
Inscriptions are “United States of America,” “$1,” and “Sequoyah” written in English in the field of the design. The reverse side of the coin was designed by Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Chris Costello and sculpted by Mint Sculptor-Engraver Charles L. Vickers.
