1899 $5 Indian Chief Bank Note - 1oz Copper Medallion

Chief Running Antelope was known for his courage during battle, diplomacy, and oratory skills as head of the Hunkpapa tribe in 1851 and as an advisor of Sitting Bull. Hunkpapa was a group of the Lakota Indians and Running Antelope was a "shirt wearer" that helped mediate between council and headmen that carried out decisions and policies. He was one of the first to befriend the whites and may be the only American Indian to appear on United States paper money, such as the 1899 $5 Indian Chief Banknote.

The Chief died in 1896 and never knew of his appearance on the Indian Chief Banknote. Paying homage to the bank note and Running Antelope, he also now appears on the 1899 $5 Indian Chief Banknote 1oz copper round.

This is a 1oz Copper replica of a 1899 $5 Indian Chief Bank Note. It comes in proof-like condition. To protect this coin it comes in an airtite and black felt pouch
