The obverse of the coin maintains the portrait of Sacagawea and her infant son Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, featuring the inscriptions “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” This design, created by Glenna Goodacre, has been featured on the coin since 2000, with the reverse design rotating each year since 2009 as part of the Native American Dollar series.

On this year’s reverse, you’ll find a depiction of Elizabeth Peratrovich alongside the symbol of the Tlingit Raven moiety, one of the descent groups within the Tlingit community of Southeast Alaska. Crafted by Phebe Hemphill, the inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “ELIZABETH PERATROVICH,” “$1,” and “ANTI-DISCRIMINATION LAW OF 1945.”
