All 2018 5 oz Colorized ATB Silver Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Coins originate with the United States Mint. However, the US Mint does not colorize any of the coins it sells. These colorized specimens had a layer of colorized lacquer added to the coin’s reverse design field to provide a different touch to the design scenery of the ATB Series.
Colorization of coins does not alter the silver content of the coins but instead adds a different attraction to coin collectors. For some, the real-life scenes captured on the coins are more beautiful with a colorized layer that brings real-world hues to the already breathtaking design concepts of the collection.
All 2018 5 oz Colorized ATB Silver Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Coins are available to you in BU condition and ship inside of protective plastic to secure the condition of the coin and its silver content.
On the obverse of all America the Beautiful coins, you’ll find the left-profile portrait of the first President of the United States of America, George Washington. This portrait was created for US coinage in 1932 by John Flanagan and issued on the circulation quarter in that same year to mark the 200th anniversary of Washington’s birth.
The reverse of the 2018 5 oz Colorized ATB Silver Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Coins includes a scene from the waters on Lake Superior near the northern tip of the US state of Wisconsin. Here, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore consists of 21 islands and 69,000 acres of coastline that include historic lighthouses, sandstone sea caves, and old-growth remnant forests.
