(1934 - 1938) Daniel Boone Bicentennial

This coin type, which was minted for five years, was first struck in 1934 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the famous frontiersman’s birth. The change of date to 1935 for the second year’s coinage brought about the addition of the commemorative date 1934 above the words PIONEER YEAR. Coinage covered several years, similar to the schedule for the Texas issues. The models for this coin were prepared by Augustus Lukeman. The obverse bears a portrait of Daniel Boone; the reverse shows Boone with Blackfish, war chief of the Chillicothe band of the Shawnee tribe.
