Rich in history, teeming with resources, and unmatched in physical beauty, the Northwest is a land like no other.
Featuring one of the most diverse cultural landscapes in the United States, the region is still home to the ancestors of the Native American nations who first gathered here centuries ago.
With its pristine lakes, dense forests, rushing rivers, and massive mountains, the Northwest continues to attract those with a sense of adventure.
This coin celebrates the Northwest's proud heritage and rich cultural tradition. The obverse features a montage dedicated to the region's Native American inhabitants -past, present, and future - as well as its abundant natural resources. 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.
