2018 America the Beautiful Series Reaches Final Destination of Rhode Island

Block Island Rhode Island Silver Coins

The 2018 5 oz Silver ATB Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, RI, marks the fifth and final coin of 2018. The latest release in the popular America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ series is now available for pre-order at APMEX.

Block Island National Wildlife Refuge, established in 1973 as an important wildlife habitat, sits 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. This relatively small refuge has an area of 127 acres and is recognized internationally as one of the most important migratory bird habitats on the east coast. A large part of this is recognition is due to more than 70 species of migratory songbirds visiting the island each fall.

The America the Beautiful Series launched in 2010 and will continue into 2021, with each coin celebrating a national park or national site from each U.S. state and territory. Each design is available as a circulating quarter, but collectors have been highly interested in the 5 oz Silver bullion coins, showcasing the exceptional parks and sites in large detail.

This 45th overall release of the series depicts a black-crowned night heron flying over the beach with the North Lighthouse, built in 1867, in the background. The obverse, like each prior coin release in the series, features the iconic John Flanagan portrait of George Washington, along with the words “United States of America”, “Liberty”, “In God We Trust” and “Quarter Dollar”.

APMEX offers a range purchasing options in addition to the single coin, including MintDirect® tubes. This process, available exclusively at APMEX, ensures each 10-coin tube was sealed in protective plastic immediately after being removed from the mint-sealed boxes, guaranteeing the tubes remain unopened, unsorted and unsearched.
