The latest offering in the US Mint’s 2011 P America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin Series features the beautiful Olympic National Park located in Washington state. This diverse park (home to beaches, rain forests, valleys, glacier-capped peaks and countless varieties of plants and animals) covers nearly one million acres, with 95% of that area officially designated as Wilderness.
Breathtaking Olympic National Park makes a grand statement on these gorgeous collectible numismatic silver bullion coins. The reverse design features a Roosevelt elk standing on a gravel river bar of the Hoh River with a view of Mount Olympus in the background. The Roosevelt elk (also known as Olympic elk) is the largest of four surviving subspecies of elk in North America. The obverse of the coins in the entire America the Beautiful series features the classic portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, however the design has been restored to bring out subtle details.
These coins measure an impressive three-inches in diameter, weigh 5 troy ounces, and contain .999 fine silver. They are produced with an uncirculated finish at the Philadelphia US Mint and therefore display a 'P' mint mark. Furthermore, the edge of each coin is incused with the coin’s fineness and weight.
