2000-P Sacagawea Dollar

Have a 2000 dollar coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment

It has been 13 years since the first golden dollars were introduced and they are far from golden anymore. Time has made them less gold and more brown and that made them even less popular. Granted this is only in America others countries like in El Salvador, Ecuador, Panama, and a few African regions have officially and unofficially made this coin their legal currency.


These original designs had Sacagawea and her child, Jean Baptiste Charbonneau, as well as Liberty and In God We Trust on the front. The back had a flying bald eagle, 17 stars, Untied States of America, One Dollar, E Pluribus Unum. Designers initials are also on both sides.

2000 and 2001 were meant for circulation while the 2002-2008 versions were sold to collectors. With a limited supply and the growing popularity out of country it is not surprising that many are fake. These early coins did not have edge lettering so in those foreign countries that love them also counterfeits them.

The funny thing is that those foreign countries do not trust the shiny new dollars and prefer the old ones. Presidential and Native American dollars are not as popular. As for American usage they are just make loops in and out of vending machines.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Dollar / United States
Year: 2000P
Mintage: 767,140,000
Metal: Core: 100% Copper
Clad Layer: 88.5% Copper, 6% Zinc, 3.5% Manganese, 2% Nickel
Value: F-12 about $1.00

Where can you get dollar coins for face value other than banks

Stores like local grocery stores and delis. I know some of the cashiers so asking them to exchange any dollar coins is easy.

You can also try local coin clubs or other coin collectors in your area.

I get a bunch from Metrocard vending machines. That will only give back change in coins. So if you have a machine that spits out dollar coins put in five dollar and cancel any sale or hit the return button and it should give you back 5 dollar coins.

A group of 5,000 with a special finish and bold feathers on the reverse have extra value between $400 - $2,500.
