Icons of Route 66 Series Silver Highway Shields

Route 66, also known as the Will Rogers Highway, the Main Street of America, or the Mother Road, is one of the most famous roads in the United States. Established on November 11, 1926, it originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending in Santa Monica, California, covering 2,448 miles.

Route 66 served as a primary path for those who migrated west during the Dust Bowl of the 1930s. The road supported the economies of the communities it passed through, with thriving businesses such as roadside service stations, motels, and tourist attractions. Route 66 has been the topic of a hit song Get Your Kicks on Route 66 and a 1960s television show simple called, Route 66 which aired a total of 116 episodes.

During World War II, Route 66 was crucial to the U.S. military, moving equipment from one industrial center to the next and ultimately overseas. Not long after, the lanes filled with families embarking on road trip vacations.

While it is not the main thoroughfare it once was, Route 66 has held onto its historical significance. The nostalgia associated with Route 66 continues to captivate people worldwide, symbolizing America's love for the open road.

Fun fact: Route 66 passed through Oklahoma City where APMEX headquarters are located.

Our Route 66 Collection

This Route 66 collection (video) includes rounds, notes, and shields representing the states the route passed through and notes depicting the map or iconic postcards. We also offer gift box tins. These items were created for collectors not necessarily for silver collectors. While most items are created using .999 fine silver, their value to collectors is often more than the current silver price.
