America The Beautiful 5 oz Coin Series (2010 - 2021)

In 2010, the United States Mint launched the America The Beautiful Quarter series, the mint's first ever 5 ounce coin, and their largest silver bullion coin to-date. The new quarter series includes a total of 56 quarter-dollar coins, each with a design of a National Park or National Site from one of the 50 states, 5 U.S. Territories and Washington D.C. The obverse design of the 5 oz America The Beautiful coin duplicates exactly the design of the America the Beautiful clad quarters used in circulation, except much bigger. The mint makes two versions of the 5 oz Silver National Park coin: a Bullion version for investors with a shiny proof-like finish, and an Uncirculated version for collectors with a matte-like finish. This version includes a U.S. Mint Box and Certificate of Authenticity, and features "P" mintmark, whereas the Bullion version does not have a mintmark. The Bullion version has higher mintages and is available through authorized bullion dealers like APMEX, while the Uncirculated version is available through the U.S. Mint directly as well as APMEX, with much smaller mintages.

All America The Beautiful 5 oz silver coins in the series have the same obverse of George Washington in a restored version of the portrait created by John Flanagan for the 1932 Washington Quarter . The reverse on each America The Beautiful Quarter includes an individual design for each National Park. Unlike the reeded edge of the normal quarter coins in circulation, the America The Beautiful silver bullion coins have a smooth edge inscribed with the coin specifications: .999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE.

The program is authorized by Congress under Title II of the America's Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008.
