Once as tall and majestic as the Rocky Mountains, the Appalachian Mountains that run the length of the eastern seaboard of North America represent the oldest mountain range on the continent. Time, weather, and tectonic changes have resulted in the Appalachians shrinking to heights below those of the peaks in the Rockies, but there is plenty of charm in the Appalachians.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the United States, with a total of roughly 11 million annual visitors. Set within the Great Smoky Mountain Range, the park and its mountain range are home to important climates and wildlife in the Eastern United States. For example, the largest old growth forest east of the Mississippi River, the densest population of black bears in the Eastern US, and the most diverse salamander population outside of the tropics all exist within the Great Smoky Mountains.
The park was established in 1934 to protect the natural environment within the mountain range and the wildlife that calls the area home. Today, the site is not only a US National Park, but also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are 78 structures within the national park also preserved along with the local environment.
On the reverse of 2014-P 5 oz Burnished Silver ATB Great Smoky Mountains Coins, you’ll find the design of a cabin set on the hillside in the mountains. A lone hawk is depicted flying overhead of the cabin. The Great Smoky Mountains are largely within Tennessee and form part of the larger Blue Ridge Mountains that extend into the Carolinas. The latter is part of the overall Appalachian Mountains.
The obverse of 2014 Burnished Silver ATB Great Smoky Mountain Coins features the left-profile portrait of George Washington. The nation’s first president is featured here in a design originally created in 1932 for the quarter.
All of these 2014-P Burnished Silver ATB Great Smoky Mountain Coins comes to you with a US Mint display box, Certificate of Authenticity, and a “P” mint mark from the Philadelphia Mint which strikes all of the burnished coins in the series.
