Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is host to hundreds of thousands of migrating ducks, geese, shorebirds and neo-tropical songbirds in their spring and fall migrations. Tired and hungry between Canada and the Gulf of Mexico, they seek shelter at Bombay Hook and feast on marsh grasses, fish and other important foods before continuing their flight.
Bombay Hook’s 16,000 acres include freshwater pools, swamps, upland forests, agricultural fields and one of the largest unaltered tidal salt marshes in the Mid-Atlantic region. It was established as a national site in 1937.
Although founded in 1937, the first transaction for this property took place in 1679 when Mechacksett, chief of Kahansink, sold Bombay Hook wetlands to Peter Bayard, an early Dutch settler. The price for the area was 1 gun, 4 handfuls of powder, 3 waistcoats, 1 anchor of liquor and 1 kettle.
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, five U.S. Territories and Washington D.C. The obverse design of each 5 oz Silver America The Beautiful coin duplicates the design of the America the Beautiful clad quarters used in circulation, except in greater detail. The mint makes two versions of the America the Beautiful 5 oz Silver coin: a Bullion version with a shiny prooflike finish made for investors and an Uncirculated, or Burnished, version with a matte-like finish made for collectors. The Burnished version features the "P" mintmark for the Philadelphia Mint and includes a U.S. Mint box and certificate of authenticity. The Bullion version does not have a mintmark and comes in a plastic capsule with no certificate of authenticity. The Bullion versions have higher mintages and are available to the public only through authorized bullion dealers like APMEX, while the Uncirculated versions have much lower mintages and are available through the U.S. Mint directly, as well as retailers like APMEX.
All America The Beautiful 5 oz Silver coins 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 of each America The Beautiful Quarter includes an individual design for each National Park or National Site. 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 America The Beautiful program is authorized by Congress under Title II of the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008.
Why invest in U.S. Silver coins?
Besides U.S. Silver coins, you can also invest in Silver through bars or rounds, but there are advantages to investing in U.S. coins. One difference between 2015 Silver bullion coins and Silver bars is that coins are legal tender and are backed by the issuing government. Silver coins for sale are often more valuable than Silver rounds for the same reason, even though the Silver bullion products often have similar designs. The 5 oz Silver coin prices also reflect a potential for collectability as well as investment, while bars and rounds typically are purchased as investment-grade bullion only.
U.S. Silver coins have beauty and collectability to add to their value.
U.S. Silver coins come in a variety of series to tempt collectors, and the large bullion America the Beautiful series is a particularly intriguing set. The 2015 Silver bullion run offers five state designs in the sixth year of a planned 12-year run of coins, making a great addition to your collection. The 5 oz Silver coin prices reflect both the value of U.S. Silver coins and the appreciation for the artistry and historical significance of the designs. These Silver coins are beautiful pieces of fine art in lasting Precious Metal.
