The selected reverse design depicts a Native American man offering a pipe and his wife offering provisions of fish, corn, roots, and gourds. The background includes a stylized image of the face of William Clark’s compass highlighting “NW” indicating the Corps of Discovery’s journey through the Northwest. The design is intended to symbolize the unity of families in offering aid, support, and friendship to those in the expedition.

This reverse design will be paired with Glenna Goodacre’s obverse design featuring Sacagawea and child that has been used for the previous Sacagawea Dollar series from 2000 to 2008 and the current Native American Dollar series from 2009 to present.
