Named for the peninsula that it encompasses along the northwest coast of the United States, Olympic National Park is one of the oldest national preserves in the country. The land was first set aside for protection in February 1897, and was later established as a federally-protected site during the administrations of both President Theodore Roosevelt and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Right now, near-perfect 2011 5 oz Burnished Silver ATB Olympic Coins are available to purchase online at Silver.com.
