2004-P Lewis & Clark Silver Commemorative Dollar IGS SP70
The coin celebrated the 200th anniversary of the start of an expedition through the newly obtained Louisiana Purchase. Led by Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark (for which the expedition is known by today), the military journey charted the new land while making contact with many Native American nations along the way.
United States Mint sculptor/engraver Donna Weaver designed and sculpted both the obverse (heads side) and reverse (tails side) of the Lewis & Clark Silver Dollars. The obverse depicts Captains Lewis and Clark on the banks of a stream planning another day of the expedition. The reverse features two feathers representing the many Native American Nations contacted by the Lewis & Clark Expedition along their way. At the center is an image of the Jefferson Peace Medal which the team gave to the Indians as they met them.
