2012 5 oz Silver ATB Chaco Culture National Park, NM

Product Details

This is the second America the Beautiful release of 2012 and the 12th overall in the series. This coin honors New Mexico's Chaco Culture National Historical Park, which contains the most vast collection of ancient ruins north of Mexico.

Chaco Canyon in northwestern New Mexico was the cultural epicenter of the Ancient Pueblo Peoples between 850 and 1150 A.D. and is today known for its "Great Houses,” distinctive architecture which feature many petroglyphs and pictographs, and kivas, or ceremonial structures. The Chacoan sites are a part of a larger network of Native Americans which included the Pueblo, Hopi and Navajo tribes. The canyon was the center of a system of communities linked across 40,000 square miles in the American southwest.

Chaco Canyon was first established as a national site on March 11, 1907. The reverse of this Silver coin illustrates two of the elevated kivas that are part of the Chetro Ketl Great House as well as the north walls of both the Chetro Ketl and the canyon.

Individual coins will come in capsules. Multiples of 10 will be delivered in mint-issued tubes without capsules. Orders of 100 come in mint-issued monster boxes also without capsules.

          One of three 2012 ATB coins that I recently purchased, this example was very nice. I appreciate APMEX sending me excellent coins that are problem free. I look forward to future purchases from APMEX.

                  This is a beautiful way to invest in silver and have something that has a very appealing design to look at. It also should appreciate in value much faster than simple silver bars or silver rounds. It is a sound purchase since it is issued by the US Mint.

                      Really nice scene. Larger size makes it easier to enjoy the art. Beautifully shiny and comes in its own protective capsule.

                      Amazing coin. My absolute favorite for this year's designs. Intricate brickwork and mountain side texture bring out the 3D effect of this art by tilting the coin slightly sideways and letting the light refract off of the lines makes me smile. Again, as always, APMEX has provided superior service second to none. Thank you.
