The 2014 Shenandoah ATB Silver Coin is the second coin released during the 2014 production run of the America the Beautiful coins. This particular design honors Shenandoah National Park in the state of Virginia. The park was first established in 1935 under the governance of the National Park Service, and it covers an estimated 199,100 acres of land. The park encompasses the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, with the Shenandoah River and Valley running along the west side of the region.
America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series honoring various monuments, moments, parks, and forests from across the country. Five new coins are released every year by the US Mint; each with a design honoring a different state. The program is scheduled to run through 2021.
On the obverse side of the coin is a rocky overlook that offers a view of the Shenandoah Valley. In the image, a lone hiker is visible at the top of the overlook, peering down into the valley below. The reverse side features the 1932 left-profile bust of President George Washington which has been featured on American quarters for decades.
Each coin in this product listing has been graded Mint State 69 by the PCGS, meaning that its full, original luster is still visible, and no more than two flaws exist on the surface. The proof-like finish gives these coins a unique and attractive appearance that is uncommon on a bullion coin.
