What does ATB mean? America the Beautiful Coins
America the Beautiful Coin Series
What does ATB mean? ATB stands for America the Beautiful, a U.S. Mint quarter-dollar series capturing the beauty and elegance of each of the 50 states, Washington D.C. and five U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands). Each coin highlights a beautiful national park or national site that truly defines the phrase "America the Beautiful".
Why America the Beautiful?
Introduced in 2010, the 5 oz Silver ATB coin series is the first of its kind produced by the U.S. Mint and is their largest Silver bullion product. Each design is duplicated from the America the Beautiful clad quarters in circulation, also since 2010. These circulating coins are more than 3x smaller (24.3 mm vs. 76.2 mm) and feature a matte finish, making them appear more dull. The 5 oz edition features a mirrorlike finish for collectors.
