The reverse design depicts a Mohawk ironworker reaching for an I-beam that is swinging into position, rivets on the left and right side of the border, and a high elevation view of the city skyline in the background. The design includes the required inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “$1,” and the additional inscription “MOHAWK IRONWORKERS.”

Comments

American Indians have become legendary figures in hazardous occupations.  Tribes take great pride in the bravery of their people, whether displayed in “high iron” construction work on the tallest skyscrapers or fire jumping and brake-cutting in the face of the West's raging wildfires.  These occupations receive the honor given to warriors in days past, and they carry on the ancient ethic of putting one's life on the line to protect the welfare and safety of the people.  Just as the ancient warriors devoted themselves to preserving all the people of the tribe, the modern risk-takers see their occupations as a contribution to the public good.
