Coin Story Human history is filled with stories of legendary warrior people, who fought and conquered their enemies through the skillful use of weapons and their superior battle tactics.

Whilst hunting for food, Apaches honed their skill with the bow and arrow. In war, they also fought with long spears, knives and tomahawks. Their weapons were dangerous in close range, and could also be thrown with legal accuracy and speed. The United States Army found them to be fierce warriors and knowledgeable strategists.

Long and bloody battles were fought against aggressors and those wanting to takeover of their land. They became known for their warlike disposition. Their prowess in battle became legend, led by several great Apache warriors such as Cochise and Geronimo.

INTERESTING FACT: In a ceremony in 1749, an Apache chief buried a hatchet to symbolize that the fighting was over, thus the term we use today, "bury the hatchet."
