2012-P 5 oz Silver ATB El Yunque (w/ box & CoA)

Product Details

These coins have been specially treated after the striking process to achieve a very noticeable matte finish. These are the collector's edition ATB coins, and they carry the 'P' mint mark. This is the first America the Beautiful release of 2012 and the 11th overall in the series. This coin honors Puerto Rico's beautiful El Yunque National Forest, which is the only tropical rainforest in the United States Forest System.

The forest was originally protected by King Alfonso XII of Spain, which makes it one of the oldest protected areas in the West. Under the name Luquillo Forest Reserve, it was established on Jan. 17, 1903. Today, more than 200 species of trees and plants, including 23 indigenous species, thrive in the forest's 28,000 acres.

The coin's reverse depicts a Coqui Tree Frog and a Puerto Rican Parrot with tropical foliage in the background. The Puerto Rican Parrot is an endangered species unique to Puerto Rico.

Each of these coins comes encapsulated and held in a box with certificate of authenticity from the U.S. Mint.

    Comments about 2012-P 5 oz Silver ATB El Yunque (w/ box & CoA):

    Wanted the coin to display due to the design which is great, and appreciated by the wife. However, the coin arrived in poor shape. The airtite was quite scuffed, and the coin itself scratched in many places. I'd recommend this coin in general (because scratches aside it looked good), just not the particular one I received.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Opted to return coin as it wasn't pretty to look at nor display which was the original intent. APMEX customer service was excellent in the return process.
