About the Design - Laurea

Introducing Laurea, or Honor, making her striking debut on the South Dakota 25 Goldback Denomination. Inspired by the legendary tale of Maiden's Isle on Lake Kampeska, Laurea embodies the essence of commitment and integrity.

Legend has it that Minnecotah, steadfast in her love for a hunter from Wahpeton, remained resolute in her fidelity despite the advances of local suitors. Placed on an island created by her suitors as a test of her loyalty, Minnecotah's unwavering resolve ultimately led to her reunion with her beloved.

In this captivating depiction, Laurea stands on the stone island, symbolizing Maiden's Isle, with a white pelican soaring above her and raspberries strewn in the foreground. Elements from Lakota legends, including the flute, the porcupine's quills, and the dream catcher, adorn the scene, infusing it with rich cultural significance.

Encouraging viewers to honor their commitments and remain steadfast in their principles, Laurea bears the inscription "Honor to the Giver," reminding all to acknowledge the source of their blessings even in the face of adversity.
