SOLD OUT AT THE MINT! Available to ship Wednesday, December 11th! The Mount Rushmore 5 oz Silver America the Beautiful coin is the 5th and final coin of the series to be released by the U.S. Mint in 2013. The Mt. Rushmore design features workers carving both Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. This design is uniquely different than prior designs on U.S. coinage as this one offers an entirely different perspective on the labor and craftsmanship that went into designing and carving such an enormous piece of art. It is also the 20th coin in the series.
Mt. Rushmore stands 5,725 high and was selected as the site to carve due to its smooth fine-grained granite which only erodes 1 inch every 10,000 years. It was designed and sculpted by renowned sculptor Gutzon Borglum who was born in 1867 in the Idaho Territory. The project cost almost $1 million to make and began on October 4, 1927 and finished on October 31, 1941. Mt Rushmore features four of the United States' most prominent Presidents including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. However, this coin only depicts Washington and Jefferson.
