- Why Buy Silver
The U.S. Mint does not sell its bullion coins directly to the public. Instead, they distribute their coins to only a handful of authorized purchasers who then sell the coins to the public. As one of these authorized purchasers, APMEX is able to get coins direct from the U.S. Mint and pass them along to you.
This coin commemorates the San Antonio Missions National historical Park in San Antonio Texas. This is the 49th release of 56 coins. These coins are sought after by investors for their .999 fine Silver content, and demanded by collectors for their artistic value.

San Antonio Missions National Historical Park
San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is a National Historical Park preserving four out of five Spanish frontier missions in San Antonio, Texas along the San Antonio River. The fifth mission is well known as the Alamo, but is not part of the park as it was operated by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas until July 2015, when management was turned over to the Texas General Land Office. All five locations are designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
These outposts were established as early as 1690 by Spanish missionaries of various Catholic orders. They were used to spread Christianity among local natives and formed a key network for Spanish colonization of the area. The missions from north to south are Mission Concepción, Mission San Jose, Mission San Juan, and Mission Espada. The Espada Aqueduct is also part of the park.
5 oz Silver San Antonio Missions National Historical Park CoinNew designs for the American the Beautiful coins are released each year, with 5 oz bullion versions as well as quarters meant for circulation. The 5 oz Silver coins are distributed by the United States Mint's network of licensed bullion dealers and sold through authorization from the National Park Service. Because the ATB series is an official release by the U.S. Mint, high standards of quality and finish can be assured. The Silver bullion used in the 5 oz San Antonio Missions National Historical Park coin is certainly valuable as an investment and the limited release design adds collectible value, too.
San Antonio Missions America the Beautiful 5 oz CoinsFor investors that have a deep appreciation for U.S. history, the San Antonio Missions America the Beautiful 5 oz coins are an ideal fit. Made from quality .999 fine Silver bullion, these coins are designed for both coin collectors and those looking to add Precious Metals to their portfolio. The entire America the Beautiful series pays homage to the landscape of the country, depicting historically significant locations from sea to shining sea. The San Antonio Missions National Historical Park was chosen for the 2019 issue because of the important role this area played in the colonization of South Texas.
All coins from the series are struck with the same obverse portrait, depicting George Washington in a restored version of the design made by John Flanagan for the 1932 Washington Quarter. The reverse is struck with an original rendering of the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. Four of the five Spanish frontier missions originally built around San Antonio, Texas, make up this National Park. These structures were built by several religious orders to spread Christianity in the area and stretched across the Spanish Southwest throughout the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.
The historical park featured on the 2019 San Antonio Missions 5 oz Silver coins has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
