As one of these authorized purchasers, APMEX is able to get coins direct from the U.S. Mint and pass them along to you.

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.
