Dollar Sacagawea (eng. Sacagawea dollar) — one of two types currently in circulation coins are in denominations of $ 1 (for the second Presidential dollar), which belong to the so-called Golden dollars (eng. golden dollars), because they are not gold, but mimic the color of gold.
Coin first minted in 2000. The obverse depicted holding the child Sacagawea (Sacajawea), a woman of the tribe of Shoshone who helped Lewis and Clark. Artist Glenn Houdijker (eng.

Coins made of copper and coated with a manganese brass, which gives it a Golden hue. Unlike most circulating U.S. coins such coverage is quite patiali and may completely lose the Golden color. At the same time, it is this feature of the coins gives them the "ancient hue" and the image Sacagawea with a child — the volume and expressiveness.
