Goodacre’s design for the Sacagawea dollar was selected in 1999 in a national competition. The composition depicts Sacagawea carrying her infant son Jean Baptiste on her back. Sacagawea is a Lemhi Shoshone American Indian famous for helping Meriwether Lewis and William Clark on their exploration of the American West. The selection of Goodacre’s design made her one of a small number of independent artists to have their artwork minted on a US circulation coin.
Glenna Goodacre individually hand-signed a limited number of labels for NGC.
