Gettysburg National Military Park 5 oz US Mint America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin

Appealing to those who love silver as much as the Blue or the Gray, the historic turning point of the US Civil War is captured in the stunning Gettysburg National Military Park 5 oz America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin. Like all the coins in this US Mint series, the coin is investment-grade, .999-fine silver.

One of the 56 coins that will eventually comprise the ambitious US Mint America the Beautiful Silver Bullion 5 oz coin program, its weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the US government. In size, they are unlike anything the US Mint has produced, measuring 3 inches in diameter with a legal-tender face value of 25 cents. (The 25-cent face value is symbolic, because the market price of silver – which is reported in the financial press – has historically been much higher.) Each coin’s fineness and weight is incused on its edge. These coins will be in demand among investors for their .999-fine silver content, and sought among collectors as the mates to the US Mint America the Beautiful Quarters series. This combination makes them superior as both investments and collectibles.

The Battle of Gettysburg is considered one of the most significant periods in American history. More than 51,000 died in the battle commemorated by President Lincoln in his famed Gettysburg Address. In 1895 it was given national park designation and today Gettysburg National Military Park covers nearly 4,000 acres with more wooded land than when the battle raged in 1863. The 5-oz America the Beautiful coin captures the events that took place at this consecrated spot, showcasing on the coin’s reverse an infantryman on the battle line at Cemetery Ridge.

America the Beautiful Quarters are issued in the order the selected national park or site was established, and as the series progresses, demand is expected to increase for the items issued earliest – and the five 2010 US Mint America the Beautiful 5 oz coins were sold out almost instantly.  Because US Mint America the Beautiful 5 oz silver bullion coins are expected to be introduced over a period of 12 years, buying the coins as they are released gives you the best chance to include all of them in your collection at a reasonable price – and purchasing them one at a time enables you to add them to your collection at the pace that works best for you.
