America was a nation of tribes long before it was a nation of states and countries. Each issue honours an US State together with the corresponding Indian Nation – in recognition of the important contributions made by Indian tribes. All coins depict the animal that is typic for the state as well as a magnificent Indian motif of the tribe. The seventh issue honours the well known Apache Indians and their famous chief Geronimo. The obverse depicts one of Arizonas most famous animals, a rattlesnake ready to attack.
