Jaime Hernandez: In the year 2000, the U.S. Mint paid $5,000 to Glenna Goodacre for creating the winning design on the obverse of the Sacagawea Dollars.

The Mint struck 5,000 Sacagawea Dollars just to pay Glenna Goodacre the $5,000 commission. Mint Director Phil Dhiel delivered the 5,000 Sacagawea coins directly to Glenna Goodacre in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Approximately five years later, it was discovered that the coins that were paid to Glenna Goodacre were struck on specially prepared planchets and by specially produced dies. As a result, the Goodacre Presentation coins displayed a different appearance that was fairly transparent. The coins struck off these dies have a burnished satin like appearance and most notable, is the fact that the coins tend to be of much higher quality than most regular circulation strike Sacagawea Dollars from the same date and mint mark.

The coins presented to Glenna Goodacre are now referred to as the Goodacre Dollars. PCGS also recognizes the special status of these coins. Goodacre Dollars certified by PCGS will receive a special designation indicating Goodacre Presentation on the holder.
