The latest coin introduced by the United States Mint in the ATB Series represents the state of Illinois. Located in America’s heartland, Illinois isn’t often associated with vast, wide-open spaces. Shawnee National Forest sits across five counties in southern Illinois, and represents the state on the America the Beautiful quarter series. Today, the 2016 5 oz Silver ATB Shawnee National Forest coin is available on Silver.com with NGC certification.

Coin Highlights:

  • First release of 2016 and 31st overall in the ATB Series.
  • Ships in a plastic slab to protect the coin’s condition.
  • Consists of five troy ounces of .999 fine silver.
  • Face value of $.25 (USD) is fully backed by the US government.
  • Graded Mint State 69 ER by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
  • Available with a Deeply-mirrored, proof-like finish.
  • Represents the state of Illinois.
  • Honors Shawnee National Forest.

Although the region of Shawnee National Forest has long been home to some of the largest tracts of forested land in the state, some of the lands within the largest parcel of federal land in the state were once used for farming. By the 1930s, that land had been exhausted and mismanaged. The Civilian Conservation Corps under President Franklin D. Roosevelt led the charge in replanting trees and rebuilding the soil to prevent future erosion.

All 2016 5 oz Silver ATB Shawnee National Forest coins in this product listing are available as near-perfect specimens. The grade of MS69 from the NGC indicates a coin that exhibits its full, original mint luster and also a maximum of two minor detracting flaws on the surface.

Each of these coins is unique in that they bear a DPL designation. This indicates a bullion coin with a deeply-mirrored, proof-like finish on the surface. Coins might feature deeply-mirrored backgrounds, matte design sets, and/or sharper edges.

The reverse side of the coin bears the image of Shawnee National Forest, and includes imagery that looks upward at the camelback rock formation as an eagle flies overhead. Engravings on this face include the state of issue and the park represented.

On the obverse is the common image found on all ATB coins and circulation American quarters, that of President George Washington. This left-profile portrait has featured on American quarters since 1932 when John Flanagan refined it from a 1786 bust of the president done by William Cousins.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
