WASHINGTON – The United States Mint today announced that 2004-dated Golden Dollars featuring Sacagawea will be available in bags of 2,000 coins and rolls of 25 coins online at www.usmint.gov beginning at noon on April 20, 2004 (Eastern Time).

These coins will be available to customers in 25-coin rolls for $35.50 and in 2,000-coin bags for $2,490. The rolled coins bear either the Philadelphia mint mark “P” or the Denver mint mark “D”, and there is no order limit.

American sculptor Glenna Goodacre designed the obverse of the Golden Dollar coin, which features the likeness of Sacagawea, the young Shoshone woman who assisted Lewis and Clark on their exploration of the Louisiana Purchase almost 200 years ago. The reverse design of the coin, by United States Mint Sculptor/Engraver Thomas D. Rogers, Sr., features a soaring bald eagle and 17 stars, one for each of the states at the time of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

Customers can purchase the 2004-dated Golden Dollar rolls and bags by visiting the United States Mint’s secure website at www.usmint.gov, or by calling 1-800-USA-MINT.
