Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is one of the most important natural environments in the United States. Established in 1937 using federal duck stamp funds, the 25 square miles of land along Delaware’s Atlantic Coast in Kent County is an important feature along the Atlantic Flyway.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of migratory birds moving from north to south, and vice versa, use Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge as a stopover place for food, rest, and breeding. Ducks, geese, cranes, and a variety of other migratory waterfowl can be found here on a yearly basis.
Each of these 2015 5 oz ATB Colorized Bombay Hook Silver Coins features brilliant natural coloring on the reverse design. Bearing the image of migratory waterfowl and the coastline of Delaware, the primary image on the reverse is surrounded by the state of issue, name of the park, “E Pluribus Unum,” and the year of minting.
On the obverse side is the left-profile portrait of President George Washington. His bust has appeared on the obverse of American 25-cent pieces since 1932, when John Flanagan updated an image of Washington originally created by sculptor William Cousins in 1786.
Although the United States Mint originally produced these coins, the US Mint does not engage in colorization on its products during initial striking. These coins have been purchased and colorized by Emporium Hamburg, a German coin trading company with 40 years of experience in the precious metals industry.
