Yellowstone National Park is the oldest national park in the United States, having been established as a protected area by President Ulysses S. Grant in 1872. Covering Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana, Yellowstone is home to bison, bears, forests, and the splendor of Old Faithful.
The America the Beautiful coin series was unveiled for the first time in 2010, with this Yellowstone ATB Silver Coin part of the original 5-coin release. Each year, five new coins will be released in honor of a different monument, moment, or place in American history. The series will eventually include 56 coins, including one for each US state, the five national territories, and the District of Columbia.
On the reverse side of the coin is Yellowstone’s Old Faithful, erupting in the background with a bison standing in the foreground. The obverse side of the coin is graced by the left-profile bust of President George Washington, as first designed by William Cousins in 1786.
Each of the coins in this product listing is available in MS69 condition from the PCGS. A near-perfect coin has its full, original luster still visible, with no more than two detracting flaws or blemishes. Although it is a bullion coin, this product features a proof-like finish that gives it a magnificent appearance.
The United States Mint produces America the Beautiful coins at its Philadelphia and San Francisco mints. Coins from Philadelphia bear no mint mark, while San Francisco coins have an “S” mint mark.
