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

For those who appreciate the enduring beauty of investment-grade silver, and those who appreciate the artistic nature of coins as collectible art and history, the US Mint America the Beautiful Silver Bullion 5 oz coin program offers rewards for both. Issued by the US Mint, the Glacier National Park coin is a collectible, investment-grade, .999-silver coin capturing the splendid magnificence of Montana’s Glacier National Park. 

Seventh overall in the series, this 5-oz America the Beautiful Silver Bullion coin was the second released in 2011. Eventually, 56 coins will be released by US Mint America the Beautiful Silver Bullion 5 oz coin program, each with weight, content and purity guaranteed by the US government. Not like anything before produced by the US Mint, each measures 3 inches in diameter with a legal-tender face value of 25 cents. Of course, 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.

Glacier National Park takes in one million acres and includes parts of two mountain ranges. The image on the reverse features one of the park’s famed mountain goats perching on rugged terrain with imposing Mount Reynolds shown in the distance. The design is by US Mint Artistic Infusion Program Associate Designer Barbara Fox and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Charles Vickers.

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.
