The Sacagawea Dollar entered the market in 2000 with a lot of fan-fare. It was something new - the US Mint's First "Golden Dollar."

You may remember organizations like Wal-Mart made commitments to the US Mint to help push the product in circulation. But there is one part of the story most didn't know about. Let me explain ...

The Story
The sculptor of the New Sacagawea Golden Dollar was Glenna Goodacre. She was presented a compensation for her adopted Sacagawea dollar design of $5000 .. payable in Golden Dollars. The Goodacre presentation coins bear distinctive surfaces. Most of the planchets were specially burnished before striking at the Philadelphia Mint, so their surfaces exhibit a texture unlike any other Sacagawea dollars. The dollars are more proof-like than Uncirculated in appearance. Each coin was also protected with a proprietary anti-oxidant to maintain the coin's appearance by inhibiting tarnish. These coins were Certified with the term "Burnished" by one of the industry's independent certification services - but that's only half of the story!

The Story - Part 2
The US Mint paid attention the fanfare created by the "Special Burnished" dollars and got in on the act. Later in the year they released a special collector set called the 2000 Millennium Collection. It contained 3 special collectibles - a 2000 W-Mint Silver Eagle, a $1 note with "2000" as part of the serial number, and a Denver Minted Sacagawea Dollar. This Sacagawea Dollar was produced in the same process as the "Goodacre Dollars" ... with the special "Burnished" appearance. BUT .. they didn't publicize it ?

Extremely Limited .. The Rarest US Mint Release
To make this even more special .. the US Mint only released 75,000 sets! It was a sellout. It ended up being the most limited release from the Mint during the first year of issue. This D Mint "Burnished" is the only special release Sacagawea Dollar issued by the Mint to this day!

Certified Authentic
Each of our coins is independently certified by ANACS as this special D Mint coin and issued as "Burnished."
