Unfortunately, due the the way in which these coins are minted, it is not uncommon for ATB coins to show slight signs of wear such as surface scratches, nicks and dings. Because of this we cannot guarantee that the coins will arrive to you in flawless condition.

As one of the US Mint’s most sought after series of coins, the ATB series is dedicated to the natural beauty and history of the United States. Every ATB series depicts another aspect of US history, whether it be a historical event, national landmark, or other noteworthy event/place. Of all the coins, few depict more iconic imagery than the 5 oz ATB Grand Canyon.
The origins of the United States’ National Park system date back to the late 1800’s and Theodore Roosevelt’s time as president of the United States. As the country more readily expanded westward, the intrinsic beauty of the landscape began captivating everyone, including President Roosevelt himself. Before long, national parks began popping up all over the United States, aptly showcasing the beauty that the US landscape is comprised of.
On the reverse side of the coin exists a depiction of the Grand Canyon lifelike enough to give you a feel for how massive it actually is. Taken from the interior of the Canyon, the image on the reverse side of the coin is textured such that you can feel the curves and imperfections of the canyon walls. Surrounding the central image of the Grand Canyon are inscriptions which read “Grand Canyon”, “E Pluribus Unum”, and “Arizona.” In addition to all of that, the bottom central part of the coin’s reverse features an engraving with the 2010 year of minting.
The coin’s obverse is arranged in the same way as a US quarter. With the profile image of George Washington dominating the center of the obverse side, you will have a tough time telling the difference between the 5 oz ATB Grand Canyon and your average quarter-dollar coin. Like a quarter, the coin’s obverse features inscriptions reading “In God We Trust’, “Liberty”, and “United States of America.” The quarter-dollar face value is also present on the coin’s obverse.
The 5 oz ATB Grand Canyon was minted only 33,000 times, so there are not a large quantity available for purchase.
