Acadia National Park in northern Maine is one of the most diverse environments you will find in any national park. Though it covers just 49,075 acres of space, the site includes mountainous terrain, rugged ocean coastlines, lakes, ponds, wetlands, and coniferous and deciduous forests. Among the key sites within the park is Cadillac Mountain. This is the tallest mountain on the eastern coastline of the US and enables the first views of the rising sun in the United States each morning.
The history of Acadia National Park is an interesting one. It was first designated Sieur de Monts National Monument by presidential proclamation during the administration of President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. It was renamed and redesignated as Lafayette National Park by Congress in 1919 and again renamed as Acadia National Park in 1929.
On the reverse side of 2012-P 5 oz Burnished Silver ATB Acadia Coins is the image of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, one of the more significant historical structures in the park. Acadia National Park was the first of its kind designated east of the Mississippi River in the US and remains the only one in the Northeastern United States.
The obverse side of 2012 Burnished Silver ATB Acadia Coins includes the image of President George Washington in left-profile relief. This design was created in 1932 by John Flanagan but inspired by a 1786 bust of Washington sculpted by William Cousins.
These 2012-P Burnished Silver ATB Acadia Coins ship to you with individual presentation cases and feature a Certificate of Authenticity. Burnished Silver ATB coins have matte finishes and boast “P” mint marks from the Philadelphia Mint on the obverse.
