Glacier National Park is one of America’s few remaining untouched, unspoiled wilderness regions. Located in the state of Montana, the park was formalized on February 22, 1897. Today it represents the state of Montana on the America the Beautiful series, a 56-coin series from the US Mint.
Each of the 2011 5 oz ATB Glacier Silver Coins in this Silver.com listing has a near-perfect grade of Mint State 69. According to the PCGS, these coins have their full, original luster, and may also feature a maximum of two minor detracting flaws on the surface.
Additionally, these coins have a deeply-mirrored finish. The DM designation is for bullion and proof coins that have a stunning, mirrored finish to the background fields of the coin.
On the reverse face of the coin you’ll find the image of a bighorn sheep looking down over a valley in Glacier National Park. Engravings identify the state, name of the park, and year of issue for the coin.
The obverse features the familiar left-profile portrait of President George Washington. Still featured on American quarter-dollar coins today, the image was created in 1932 by John Flanagan based upon a 1786 bust of the nation’s first president by William Cousins.
