Known officially as the Virgin Islands of the United States, the islands that are now a US territory were for a long time controlled by the Kingdom of Denmark. Known at that time as the Danish West Indies, the islands were controlled by the Kingdom of Denmark-Norway from 1754 to 1814 and then by the independent Kingdom of Denmark from 1814 to 1917.
In 1917, Denmark sold the islands to the United States in the Treat of the Danish West Indies. This passed control of the three main islands of Saint Croix, Saint John, and Saint Thomas over to America. The current capital of the territory is the city of Charlotte Amalie on the island of St. Thomas.
President George Washington is featured on the obverse side of the 2020 5 oz Silver ATB Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Preserve Coins. This left-profile bust of Washington was created in 1932 by John Flanagan for the US quarter. Washington’s bust was put on the quarter that year to honor the 200th anniversary of his birth.
A young red mangrove tree is depicted on the reverse of all 2020 Silver ATB Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Preserve Coins. The red mangrove grows in estuarine ecosystems such as those preserved by the ecological park at Salt River Bay. An estuarine ecosystem exists only in the tropics and consists of a partially enclosed coastal body of water that is brackish in nature, features one or more rivers flowing into it, and has a free connection to the open sea.
