The U.S. Mint’s America the Beautiful Series Continues at APMEX
APMEX, Inc., a leading Precious Metals e-retailer based in Oklahoma City, is thrilled to announce the latest release in the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ series is now available for pre-order. The 2018 5 oz Silver ATB Cumberland Island National Seashore, GA, marks the fourth release of 2018 and 44th overall in the series.
Sitting off the southernmost edge of the Georgia coast, Cumberland Island National Seashore encompasses the largest of Georgia’s Golden Isles. The National Park Service, who manages the public areas of the park, restricts access to the island to 300 people at a time. At least 23 distinct ecological communities are found within the park, making it the largest and most biodiverse of Georgia's barrier islands. Paying homage to the island’s migratory waterfowl, the reverse of this beautiful .999 fine Silver coin depicts a snowy egret standing on a branch on the edge of a salt marsh. The obverse of the coin, like each prior 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”.
“We are excited to once again offer this ever-popular series to our customers,” APMEX Vice President of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “The America the Beautiful series is treasured by collectors, for its unique designs and quality detail, while investors enjoy the .999 fine Silver content and 5 oz weight. We love seeing customers add to, or begin, an America the Beautiful series as each release comes around.”
APMEX offers a wide range of purchasing options for anyone interested in the America the Beautiful Series. In addition to the single coin, customers can find MintDirect® tubes, available exclusively at APMEX. This process 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.
As the 50 State Quarters program came to an end in 2008, the U.S. Mint prepared for the next series of circulating quarters. The America the Beautiful Series launched in 2010 and will continue into 2021, with each of the 56 total coins celebrating a national park or national site from a U.S. state and territory. Each design is available as a circulating quarter, but collectors are more interested in the 5 oz Silver bullion coins, showcasing the exceptional parks and sites in large detail.
