presentation boxEmbodying the essence of the Apache warrior spirit, Geronimo was born in 1829 in the arid lands of the American southwest.



Renowned as a fearless and resourceful fighter, Geronimo repeatedly frustrated the U.S. Army's attempts to corral him, often eluding capture through daring escapes. In a series of battles that began in 1885, Geronimo commanded a small force of Apache warriors against 5,000 U.S. troops, holding the Army at bay for nearly a year before finally surrendering in 1886.



As the leader of one of the last resistance forces in the American West, Geronimo became the living symbol of a civilization and a way of life that were rapidly disappearing from the American cultural landscape.



This coin commemorates the indomitable spirit of Geronimo, fearless leader of the Apache nation, who persevered against all odds to protect the freedom of his people. The obverse features a rendering of Geronimo exhibiting his notoriously piercing stare. The reverse features a buffalo, standing inside a dream catcher, a Native American cultural icon still in use today.



According to Native American legend, dream catchers - which are made by stretching a web of sinew strands across a small wooden hoop - are designed to capture only those spirits that give life to the tribe, leaving all others to pass through its small holes.



Minted in .999 pure silver and plated in 24-karat gold, this proof-quality coin is sealed in a tarnish-resistant Lucite capsule. Each coin comes displayed an attractive leatherette presentation box and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
