The recommended reverse for the 2017 Native American dollar features a profile of Sequoyah, a Cherokee silversmith and inventor of the Cherokee Syllabary.

 He is shown creating the original characters for the syllabary. Additional inscriptions are CHEROKEE SYLLABARY as well as Sequoyah's name in English at the lower border and in Cherokee above his writing tablet.

The body is set to review designs for a number of new U.S. Mint releases over the course of its Oct. 7 and 8 meetings. Designs to be reviewed are for the 2017 and 2018 Native American dollar coin reverses, the obverses and reverses for two Code Talkers congressional gold medals, the reverse of the 2017 America the Beautiful quarter dollars, and the obverse and reverse of the 2017 Lions Club International Century of Service commemorative silver dollar.

The Native American $1 Coin Program was authorized under Public Law 110-82 and requires coins to be issued with annually rotating designs honoring of Native Americans and the important contributions made by tribes and individuals to the development and history of the United States.

For each year of the series, the Glenna Goodacre depiction of Sacagawea and child has appeared on the obverse, while the reverse has carried the design for the given theme.
