2010 Native American Dollar Rolls


The United States Mint will begin sales of 2010 Native American Dollar Rolls on January 22, 2009 at 12:00 Noon ET.

The 2010 Native American Dollar design is based on theme "Government - The Great Tree of Peace." The reverse features the Hiawatha Belt, which is a visual record of the creation of the Haudenosaunee, also known as the Iroquois Confederacy. The symbols on the belt and five arrows represent the Onondaga, Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, and Seneca Nations. The obverse features Glenna Goodacre's design of Sacagawea and child.

The US Mint will sell 25-coin rolls from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint. The coins are wrapped in yellow and black US Mint branded wrappers, which indicate the date, series, face value, and mint mark of the contents. The rolls are priced at $35.95 each.

The US Mint continues to sell the 2010 Native American Dollar Direct Ship Rolls, which went on sale January 4, 2010. These rolls can be ordered in quantities of 250, at face value with no charge for shipping. They are packaged as ten 25-coin rolls in generic red and white wrappers, rather than the US Mint's branded wrappers, and orders cannot be place for coins from a specific mint.

Last year, both numismatic rolls and Direct Ship rolls of 2009 Native American Dollars were available throughout most of the year. Despite the face value priced alternative, collectors still ordered 59,000 Philadelphia rolls and 53,732 Denver rolls from the numismatic offering.

Geez, based upon a recent blog about damaged Sac dollars and comments relating to whether the coin's composition stands up in the fancy yellow mint wrappers that command a premium, does it really make sense to buy these? Paying a premium over face for a yellow piece of paper that says US Mint on it seems a poor choice if you can expect these coins to tarnish and worse in a few years. Always just my own opinion, but I'll pass on buying these. There are other buying options for 2010. ~Grandpa.

My direct ship rolls of the 2010 Sac's arrived today. They don't appear to be spotty. I liked the idea of always keeping a couple (2 or 3) in my pocket and spend them, so i will do my part. Design-wise there are other coins i would prefer to keep long term, so I don't yet know if i will buy the Mint Wrappers, it is kinda silly to pay for the paper. But then again, look at what the LP1 Mint Wrappers are selling for now.

I think the US Mint has gotten used to completely destroying all hopes after the 2000 junk they just sold the people that believed they would hold up.Expectations are low at best on any US Mint products any more.I wish I could say they did an outstanding job.But after the last few years I have decided to not trust anything they ever say or expect any kind of high quality from Them. Therefore,I have decided to just not buy from them any more.Their prices completely suck too.For the prices they ask they should deliver a decent product.And they just don't do that any more.

As I have stated on other posts I really don't have much interest in brass dollars for collecting. These things are for circulation. If the mint would honor Sacajawea and the Presidents with a silver proof set then I would say there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I am wait and see right now. Maybe the silver quarters America the Beautiful proof set might end up in my collection. Not real excited about the silver commems unless the mint comes out with some unique packaging like the Kennedy proof silver combined with the Scouting silver coin which was suggested by someone.

A $10.95 premium per roll. They all better be MS-67 or better.

Buy them, unwrap them, and carefuly store them in saflips or airtights. That is the only way they will keep. Alcohol contains Carbon, Hydrogen, and Oxygen. The hydrogen will bond with the manganese and accelerate the oxidation. It will be impossible to avoid oxidation on the edges unless you wear finger cots or gloves.

Can someone comment on the differences on Uncirculated coins, say from a local bank, mint rolls from the Mint, uncirculated coins from the mint and proof coins from the mint.?

received my direct ship rolls of 2010 Sac's. they look pretty good. they are from the denver mint. already spent a few at area stores (ex. BJ's, walmart, etc.) and received the same funny looks from the cashiers. their faces are priceless! on another note, i did not get charged as a cash advance. instead it was billed as a merchant credit card purchase. i hope this info helps people.

I find it humorous that the Mint tries to sweet talk collectors into buying $250 boxes of junk coins to "spread around and spend", thus acting as their unpaid unofficial agents, then have the gall to turn around and slap the same collectors in the face by not issuing long running produced collector coins they really want. Silver & Gold Eagles come to mind for which collectors pay a handsome premium to boot.

Quid pro quo? I say let them eat cake and drown in their junk coins no one wants.

In response to the 1/19/10 3:48 PM poster who mentioned that his direct ship Sacagawea's were not spotted. The article was in reference to the 2001 Sacagawea's direct ship coins.

airprairie,
there are three main annual mint sets. The Uncirculated set, their Proof set (sometimes just called the Mint set), and the Silver Proof set.
The coins in proof sets are put on specially polished planchets and double-struck so that the design is extra extra clear. The silver proof set is the same except that the quarters, the half dollar, and dime are 90% silver. Pre-2005, the Uncirculated sets were just that... true uncirculated versions of the coins with hardly a difference from what you would get from the bank. But from 2005 onward, the Mint added a 'satin finish' to the coins to make them brighter and nicer looking. So, anything you buy 2005 onward that calls itself 'uncirculated', may not truly be an uncirculated (bank-quality) coin.

To the person that's so happy Scott Brown won. Did you cheer on 9-11?

45,000 people dead this year because the bill was stopped.

America: The only country in the world that has citizens set up plastic jugs at 7-11 hoping to save a kids life thru donations.

Must be a great day for you huh?

If enough of the one dollar coins get into circulation maybe the treasury will remove the one dollar paper FRN. If they don't do it soon inflation should take care of the problem in a year or two. I liked the idea of putting the Kennedy half back into circulation with maybe a different reverse and a hair smaller.
