These coins were minted in order to commemorate the bicentennial of Lewis and Clark's expedition into the western part of the United States. The goal of their expedition was to explore the new lands that were acquired through the Louisiana Purchase and to establish trade relations with the Native American tribes.

The obverse side of the coin features explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark discussing their expedition at a stream bank. The dates 1804 and 1804 are inscribed on the coin. These dates signify the beginning and end of the expedition.

On the reverse side of the coin the design features the original Jefferson Peace Medal which was given to Native Americans tribal leaders on behalf of President Thomas Jefferson. There are two feathers next to the medal which represent the Native American cultures that were impacted by the expedition. The 17 stars shown on the coin represent the number of states in the Union back in 1804.
