Poarch Creek Indians 2005 Tchow-ee-pu-o-kaw Silver Dollar Proof Coin
This silver dollar is based on an 1836 painting by George Catlin that was a gift of Mrs. Joseph Harrison, Jr. to the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Catlin found Tchow-ee-pu-o-kaw of particular interest because her dress did not reflect the colorful Creek dress of the 1830s, which was based on European fashion, but seemed to hark back to earlier times. Her necklace of silver disks may have been a trade item.
This 2005 Poarch Creek Indian coin is limited to 10,000 Proof Silver Dollars. It contains 1 oz. of pure .999 silver.
