Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness

Outside of Alaska, the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness Area in Idaho is the largest contiguous federal wilderness in the United States. Created by the U.S. Congress in 1980, it was renamed in honor of Senator Frank Church in 1984. Frank Church sponsored the Wilderness Act of 1964 and introduced the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968, both of which added millions of acres of land to the National Wilderness Preservation System and included large portions of the current River of No Return Wilderness. In 1980, Church's environmental legislation culminated with the passage of the Central Idaho Wilderness Act, which created the present day wilderness area by combining the Idaho Primitive Area, the Salmon River Breaks Primitive Area, and part of the Magruder Corridor. The 2.367 million acres of the wilderness protects several mountain ranges, wildlife and the Salmon River, also known as the River of No Return for its swift rapids. In 1948 beavers had been parachuted into the area and today have formed thriving colonies which, along with many other species, are protected by the area's Wilderness status.

The United States National Park Service approves the coins, which pay tribute to the nation's most beautiful national landmarks.

The reverse of the 5 oz Silver Frank –Church-River of No Return Wilderness coin is struck with a new representation of the native wonders found in the area. The park includes sections of the Payette, Challis, Salmon, Boise, Bitterroot and Nez Perce National Forests. The obverse of all 5 oz ATB Silver bullion coins is the same as the corresponding quarter-dollars, with a famous portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States.

ATB River of No Return Wilderness 5 oz Coins Honor a National Treasure

Theodore Roosevelt is recognizable today as one of the four faces on Mount Rushmore. His presence there is because of his tireless efforts to create a National Park System that preserves America's most valuable treasures for future generations to enjoy. The original 18 National Parks established by Roosevelt have grown through the years and 49 operate today.

The National Parks chosen for the 2019 America the Beautiful series were selected based on their splendor and historical significance. Depictions of nature’s treasures add value to these coins above and beyond the price of the Silver bullion. Lovers of the great outdoors and United States history find joy in collecting these coins, preserving them to be enjoyed by future generations of heirs and loved ones.

The wilderness area featured on the 2019 Frank –Church-River of No Return 5 oz Silver coins is home to several species, including bighorn sheep, mule deer and whitetail deer.
