The America the Beautiful coin series introduces five new coins each year, honoring various places, moments, and monuments from American history. A total of 56 coins will be introduced during the program, with each of the 50 states represented, as well as the five territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the federal district of Washington D.C.
On the reverse side of the coin is the image of Old Faithful, erupting on its seemingly regulated schedule as a bison stands in the foreground. Engravings read “Wyoming,” “Yellowstone,” and “E Pluribus Unum.” The obverse side of the coin is graced by the left-profile bust of President George Washington commonly found on the standard circulation quarter.
Each of the coins in this product listing has a near-perfect grade. This means the coin still has its full, original luster, as well as a maximum of two blemishes. These flaws are not visible, however, within the primary focal are of the coin. The bullion coins in this listing are available with a deeply-mirrored, proof-like finish.
