Effigy Mounds National Monument


Established in 1949 the park is considered a sacred landscape by members of many modern-day tribes whose ancestors once lived here. The majority of the mounds were constructed between one thousand and two thousand years ago — often to inter the dead, but sometimes for ceremonial purposes, or to tell important stories. Today, Effigy Mounds National Monument offers an excellent view of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers, and is home to a wide diversity of flora and fauna and helped shape the lifestyles and the belief systems of the moundbuilders.

The park is home to more than 200 mounds in a wide variety of forms, including more than 30 animal or bird-shaped “effigy” mounds for which the park is named. Often more than 100 feet long individually, many of these animal and bird shaped mounds are perched high atop rugged bluffs overlooking the adjacent Mississippi River. Aside from preserving these tangible links to an ancient and highly creative people, the park features outstanding views of the Mississippi River Valley, and hosts many of the native plant and animal communities that sustained people in this area for millennia.


America The Beautiful 5 oz Coin Series (2010 – 2021)
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 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.

The ATB coins are a nice way to buy 5 coins a year and end up with 25 oz of silver. The coins are always different and are a little slice of American history. My girls love them also so I am buying two of each so they will be passed along for others to admire.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)

I received the same great service from APMEX. This coin was shipped well and the example I received is choice, not having a lot of marks or other negatives. That's why I keep coming back to APMEX. This particular issue is not one of my favorite designs; still, it is part of a set.

I was thrilled to be able to buy this coin at the very attractive price offered. I have purchased all the regular size and most of the 5 oz ATB coins and just love the concept. I feel they will only go up in value. I tried the pre order and decided to save a little more and send in a check rather than using the credit card option and see how that worked. I immediately received an email when they received my check and that will be my method of purchase from now on. I am very please with APMEX and these coins.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition
