The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is located on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina and was established on June 15, 1934. It's one of the busiest national parks in the United States with over nine million visitors a year. It also boasts hundreds of miles of roadways and hiking trails, wildlife and forestry, and remnants of Southern Appalachian Mountain culture. The park is also designated as an international biosphere reserve due to the many species of plants and animals that live in the park. The Smoky Mountains are part of the Blue Ridge Mountains and a division of the Appalachian Mountains.
The reverse design of the Great Smoky Mountains Silver ATB coin depicts a beautiful scene similar to that of which you would encounter in the park. A classic style log cabin and split-rail fence against a background of mountains and trees with an eagle soaring overhead. Also included are the inscriptions “Great Smoky Mountains,” “Tennessee,” and “E Pluribus Unum,” as well "2014."
