Celebrate America with the Final ATB Coin of 2017
The America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ series began in 2010 and is expected to include 56 coins with a face value of a quarter dollar. Each coin features a design of a National Park or National Site from one of the 50 states, five U.S. territories and Washington D.C. Each design will be available of course as a circulating issue, but collectors are more interested in these 5 oz Silver bullion coins, showcasing the exceptional parks and sites in large detail.
As the end of 2017 draws near, the final release of the year is now available. The 2017 5 oz Silver America the Beautiful George Rogers Clark, IN, marks the 40th release of the series and celebrates colonial Americans overthrowing the British to win a vast expanse of frontier land.
This beautiful .999 fine Silver coin depicts a group of frontiersmen led by George Rogers Clark. In 1779, Clark received approval from the governor to lead a major offensive against the British, who held Fort Sackville, in Indiana, along with an Appalachian frontier territory the size of the original 13 colonies. The reverse displays this group of men, rifles in hand, ready to attack. The obverse of this coin, like every coin 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".
The America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ program honors the National Park System made possible by legislation championed by President Theodore Roosevelt, who established 18 national parks by the end of his time in office. This practice was continued by later presidents through the Antiquities Act until there were more than 100 national parks and monuments. Many of those have been reclassified and today there are 59 National Parks, with more than 350 other designated sites, including National Forests, National Rivers and National Monuments, among others.
