The Great Sand Dunes 5 oz Silver America the Beautiful .999 fine Silver coin is the 4th coin of the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program released by the U.S. Mint in 2014 and the 24th coin overall in the series!

The Great Sand Dunes National Park of Colorado is known for the tallest sand dunes in North America and was officially established as a National Park in 2004, though it was designated as a national monument in 1932. The Dunes were molded from many years of sand from dried up lake beds blowing from predominantly southwestern winds and storm winds blowing in the opposite direction, which is why the dunes have grown so high. The extremely strong wind is the primary force behind the shape of the dunes, which change daily because of it. There are several streams, as seen on this coin, which erode the dune fields. The sand particles are then swept downstream until the water disappears and the particles are left on the surface. Because of this, the sand is often wet, just a few inches below the surface. Visitors to the park often bring sleds and specially made sandboards to try and ride down the dunes, however, the best results are had when the surface itself is wet. Visitors are also advised to wear sturdy close-toed footwear as the sand can reach temperatures of over 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

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.

        When i received my order i was expecting my coins in near perfect condition but my sand dunes came with something sticky on the obverse side of the coin. I have ordered from apmex before and never had any problems until now. I can look past minor scratches but this is no good.

                The designs of these ATB 5 oz. coins are attractive to me, so I am working toward collecting them all. If I were purely a bullion collector I probably wouldn't buy them because there are more affordable ways to buy silver, but the beautiful designs struck on a chunk of silver makes for a lovely collection. This particular coin that I received from APMEX has no major marks on it and was struck on a nice planchet. Many of these coins display a "brushed" appearance which I believe was characteristic of the planchet before the coin was struck. Not this example, wish they were all like this.

                            The detail of the coins is very nice. As collectibles, I believe that their value will appreciate over time. I look forward to the future releases in the same series. In fact they are available from APMEX at prices less that the US Mint./

                                APMEX needs to mimic the US Mint in allowing subscription of the 5 oz. ATB. I pair the ATBs then send for grading/slabbing .
