For the America the Beautiful Series of silver coins, the United States Mint, Treasury Department, and the Secretary of the Treasury collaborated with citizen advisory committees to make selections for representative national monuments, parks, and forests from each of the 50 states, five overseas territories, and the District of Columbia.
The obverse of the ATB Silver Coins from the US Mint features the profile of President George Washington. Just as it appears on the circulation quarter, this left-profile effigy was created in 1932 by John Flanagan.
On the obverse of the 2017 5 oz ATB Silver Frederick Douglass National Historic Site Coin is the image of Frederick Douglass sitting at his desk, pencil and paper in hand. The image of his home is located in the background, which is preserved to this day at the National Historic Site in D.C.
All America the Beautiful Silver Coins are struck in uncirculated and proof versions by the United States Mint. The Denver Mint and Philadelphia Mint locations handle the production of all these coins within the US Mint system on an annual basis.
