America the Beautiful 5 oz Silver Coins
The America Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008 allows for the U.S. Mint to issue quarters and 5 ounce .999 fine silver coins (that have an incredible 3 inch diameter) each year until one has been released for each U.S. state and territory. The program will run for 12 years from 2010 through 2022. The five ounce silver coins are a great option for those who do not collect quarters but admire the beauty of the National Park quarter designs.
The America The Beautiful 5 ounce silver bullion coins are of the same exact design of the standard quarter dollars and only differ by their metallic composition, their edges, and of course their size. The edge of the America the Beautiful Silver Coins are not reeded as on the standard quarters, but instead are plain with incused edge lettering stating the coinís fineness and weight.
The U.S. Mint strikes two different versions of each five ounce America The Beautiful silver coin. The first is the standard silver bullion issue which is sold through a small network of bullion dealers just as Silver Eagles are sold. The second is a collector's issue which is struck with a special matte or "vapor blast" finish. When certified, these vapor blast coins are given a "specimen" designation. The specimen or vapor blast issues are sold directly to collectors in very limited numbers and come encapsulated with a mint case and certificate of authenticity.
Scheduled for release in 2018 are Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore (Michigan), Apostle Islands National Lakeshore (Wisconsin), Voyageurs National Park (Minnesota), Cumberland Island National Seashore (Georgia), and Block Island National Wildlife Refuge (Rhode Island). Be sure to add these beautiful and historic coins to your five ounce silver coin collection!
