The US Mint has been in business for well over 200 years and has gained a great reputation along the way. First tasked with producing the coinage of the newly formed United States, the US Mint has since evolved into a mint that provides for the coinage of numerous countries around the world. Of all the coin series created by the US Mint, few are more popular than the America the Beautiful series of coins. Following closely in line with 2010’s release, 2011’s series also celebrate the many National Parks of the United States.
First established in the late 1800s, the US National Park System was the product of US citizens moving westward. As people moved away from the cities that line the East Coast, they discovered more and more of the natural beauty found in the otherwise unexplored parts of the United States. As this beauty was uncovered, President Theodore Roosevelt felt the need to both preserve and celebrate it; this happened through the creation of the National Park System. Of all the many National Parks, few are more well-known than Glacier National Park.
The obverse side of the 5 oz ATB Glacier National Park silver coin has imagery that perfectly celebrates all that Glacier National Park has to offer. The focal point of the obverse’s image is a Mountain Goat perched on some rocks. The Mountain Goat is the official symbol of Glacier National Park, mostly because they roam the park freely and are admired by the millions of tourists who visit the park annually. In the background you can see the rugged landscape that makes up much of the park, and the imagery allows you to really feel how rough the landscape is.
The reverse side of the 5 oz ATB Glacier National Park coin looks identical to the reverse side of a US quarter. Even down to the inscriptions and $0.25 face value, the reverse side of all ATB coins are made to exactly replicate that of a US quarter.
