Theodore Roosevelt National Park Coin
Theodore Roosevelt is noted as the founder of the National Parks System and subsequently the founder of one of the greatest American ideas bestowed upon the world. The Theodore Roosevelt National Park, located in North Dakota, was established as a national site in 1946. Before he was president, Roosevelt ventured to the Dakota Territory to hunt bison in 1883. The experience shaped his views on land use and nature conservation, which led to one of the greatest of American ideas: the creation of protected areas as National Parks. During his presidency, the conservation of resources was not necessarily valued for their intrinsic, natural beauty, but it was here in the wilderness that Roosevelt built a ranch and became inspired to campaign toward the preservation of land as parks.
Today the park has 70,000 acres, over 150 species of birds, elk deer, prairie dogs, and a 7-foot-tall fence for a large herd of American Bison. The park has over 100 miles in trails and sightseeing opportunities with approximately 400,000 visitors a year.
The colorful Little Missouri River Badlands provides the dramatic scenic backdrop to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, which memorializes the 26th President, also known as the "Rough Rider", for his enduring contributions to the conservation of our nation's resources. An abundance of native grasses provides sustenance for prairie dogs and large grazing animals while diverse habitats attract a great number of birds. Wildlife viewing is one of the most popular activities in the park. It was established as a national site in 1946.
The reverse of the beautiful coin commemorating the Theodore Roosevelt National Park was designed by AIP artist Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill.
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.
