One of the largest public works projects undertaken during the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt was the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Blue Ridge Parkway winds through the Blue Ridge Mountain chain of the Appalachians along America’s east coast. The highway offers breathtaking views of the local mountains, with impressive vistas and tree-lined hills awaiting any who travel along this stretch of American road.
America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series honoring America’s national parks, forests, and monuments. The series was introduced in 2010 and is set to run through 2021, with the Secretary of the Treasury authorized to extend the program through 2033.
Each of the coins in this product listing has a near-perfect grade of MS69 from the NGC. Coins in this condition have their full, original luster, and no more than two minor detracting flaws. As the NGC notes, these flaws are located outside the primary focal areas of the coin’s surface.
These coins have a deeply-mirrored, proof-like finish that is unique on a bullion coin, giving them added visual brilliance. As part of the Early Release Series, these coins were all struck during the first 30 days of the production cycle.
On the reverse you’ll see a depiction of the roadway as it emerges from one tunnel before encountering another, and offering a brief glimpse of the surrounding mountains. The obverse side bears the left-profile portrait of President George Washington as featured on American quarters.
