Crow Government Introduces Commemorative Coin

Posted: Updated:
CROW AGENCY -

The Crow Tribal Government is releasing a new commemorative coin.

The precious-metal based coin will commemorate the history behind the nearby Custer Battlefield. Crow Government officials say they will use proceeds from the coin's sale to fund economic development and other business ventures on the reservation.

"With an 80% unemployment rate, we're looking to lower that as much as we can through all different kinds of business ventures, and this is just one of them," said Ceivert LaForge with the Crow Tribal Administration. La Forge went on to say that the tribal government has worked on the coins since March of 2013, and that the coins could eventually pave the way to a new Crow Tribe currency.
