Sacagawea Dollars: Treasure in a Cereal Box
You may never have seen a Sacagawea Dollar. They were only in circulation for a few years, produced in the hopes that a long-lasting coin could replace short-lived dollar bills. The public disdained using them, and they are now only in U.S. Mint Proof Sets.
I have received them in change now and then, but rarely. People confuse them with quarters, despite the gold coloring.
Should you happen upon a Sacagawea Dollar from 2000 with a “P” mintmark, it could be worthwhile to flip it over. There are two varieties of this year that have a high value to coin collectors.
