The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is located on the northern tip of Wisconsin, near the town of Bayfield. The 21 protected islands are scattered along the coast of Lake Superior which is considered the "largest, cleanest, and coldest" of the great lakes. Visitors will find a variety of spectacular natural features including sandy beaches, cliffs, sandstone caves, and the Lake itself.
Ancient glaciers carved the Great Lakes and the islands millenia ago. It is thought that Native Americans first inhabited the islands nearly a century ago. Not long after, they were charted by the French explorer, Étienne Brûlé who was looking for a ship route to the East Indies. It was the fur trade that helped establish towns and commerce.
Congress declared the Apostle Islands as a National Lakeshore in 1970. Today this natural treasure is commemorated in silver. The US Mint released the Apostle Island coin as the 42nd in its America the Beautiful series of 5-ounce pure silver coins. This series has been popular with investors for three reasons.
The coin's reverse features a man kayaking the waters of Lake Superior with sandstone cliffs rising out of the waters to his left. Trees dot the cliff tops. Inscribed on the reverse are the words; Apostle Islands, Wisconsin, 2018, and E Pluribus Unum.
The obverse carries the familiar coin portrait of George Washington - the portrait featured on current Washington quarters. The inscriptions on this side include; United States of America, Liberty, In God We Trust and Quarter Dollar.
The coins are packaged by the US Mint in tubes of 10 coins. A full Mint box contains 10 tubes for a total of 500 ounces. The weight and purity of the coin is inscribed on the coin's rim and is guaranteed by the US government.
It is always a great idea to invest in physical silver. Why not get some beauty, history and something to start conversations with to go along with your ounces? Each new release in the America the Beautiful series tends to go quickly. Many of the coins now command significant premiums in the secondary market. Don't delay - get yours while they are available.
