Roosevelt was perhaps one of America’s most active presidents, traveling the world as a big game hunter and gaining an appreciation of the wild environments of the world. One of his favorite places to go was the state of North Dakota. Here, Roosevelt not only hunted wild game such as bison, but also built himself a ranch.
Today, that ranch and much more land in the state is part of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. Covering three separate partitions of land in central and northern North Dakota, Theodore Roosevelt National Park stands as a testament to his efforts to establish protected lands throughout the United States.
On the reverse of the 2016 5 oz Silver ATB Theodore Roosevelt National Park Coin you’ll find the image of Roosevelt on horseback as he looks out over the Little Missouri River in North Dakota, surveying the lands in front of him.
The obverse of the coin includes the left-profile portrait of President George Washington. His effigy was placed on the obverse of the nation’s 25-cent piece in 1932 as part of the bicentennial celebration of his birthday. It has remained on the obverse of the quarter since that time, making it the longest running US coin design.
Each 2016 5 oz Silver ATB Theodore Roosevelt National Park coin in this listing from Silver.com has a near-perfect MS69 grade from the NGC. Coins in this condition still have full, original mint luster, but also feature a maximum of two minor detracting flaws on the coin’s surface.
Deeply-mirrored, proof-like coins have proof qualities despite their bullion striking. This is highlighted by the proof, matte-like finish of the background fields and the presence of some deeply-mirrored visuals on the design sets.
