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.

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 with a shiny proof-like finish made for investors, and an Uncirculated version with a matte-like finish made for collectors. 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.

Beautiful Silver

By  Glenn

from Colorado

5.0

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.

Pros

  • Mint Condition
  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

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.
