James Francis “Jim” Thorpe (1888-1953), was born near Prague, Oklahoma, in what was then Indian Territory. Raised in the Sac and Fox tribe, he was given the native name Wa-Tho-Huk, meaning “Bright Path.” Jim Thorpe became possibly the most versatile natural athlete of the early 20th century.
The reverse design depicts Jim Thorpe, while the foreground highlights his achievements in football and as an Olympian.
The obverse design retains the central figure of the “Sacagawea” design first produced in 2000.
