2004 Skydancer Silver Dollar from the Poarch Creek Indian Nation

This coin was minted by the Poarch Creek Indian Nation. It is in a plastic airtight container, but has a hint of toning at 3:00 on the obverse. I would guess the grade in the MS65-69 range.

The obverse shows a Creek Indian dancing to the right (performing a Skydancer ceremony), while wearing traditional tail feathers, a head dress, and leggings. He is advancing on a seal of the Poarch tribe of the Creek nation. The legend reads “Creek Nation of Indians” from 8:00 clockwise to 4:00. The denomination “One Dollar” is at the bottom from 7:00 clockwise to 5:00. There is a ring of dots separating the legends from the iconography of the coin.

    I have the Uncirc and Proof of both of these 2004 commemoratives!!
    Does anybody know the true value of these extremely low mintage coins!!!!

  2. Sadly, I haven’t seen this trading at much of a premium over their melt value. But, I agree that they are both low mintage and highly desirable.
