The Great Basin, primarily located in Nevada, covers an area of more than 180,000 square miles with elevations as high as 14,500 feet. The Great Basin is known for its unique geology and ecology, but the most commonly known feature is its hydrology. The area is completely self contained, which means that any precipitation within the region either drains into rivers and lakes, but does not find its way to the Pacific Ocean or the Gulf of Mexico. The Great Basin spans through five states and includes hundreds of mountain ranges, making Nevada the most mountainous state in the union. It is made up of over 90 basins and valleys making it home to unique plant life such as the Bristlecone Pine. These ancient trees are some of the world’s oldest, some living for more than 4,000 years.



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.
