America The Beautiful Silver Coin (5 Oz ATB Silver Coins) - Apostle Islands National Lakeshore

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 millennia 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, joining other National Historical Parks. Today this national park treasure is commemorated in mint silver commemorative coins. The US Mint released the Apostle Islands quarter as the 42nd in its 5 oz America the Beautiful silver bullion coin series of pure silver coins. This National Park quarters series has been popular with investors for three reasons.

  • The bullion coins are big and the artwork is beautiful making them an interesting addition to any silver holding.
  • The coins are affordable with premiums similar to the American Silver Eagle coin, despite lots of demand from coin collectors.
  • Each coin carries its own unique story.

The Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Quarters (Apostle Island coin) 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 "The United States of America," "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and, "Quarter Dollar."

The coins are packaged by the United States 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 are inscribed on the coin's rim and are guaranteed by the US government.

It is always a great idea to invest in physical silver bullion, especially US silver coins. The 2018 Apostle Islands Quarter value is unique and a great addition to any Apostle Island coin collection! Why not get some beauty, history, and something to start conversations with to go along with your ounces? Each new silver bullion coin released in America the Beautiful Quarters tends to go quickly. Many of the coins now command significant premiums in the secondary market. Don't delay - get your Apostle Island coin while they are available.

    Nice 5 ounce roundie.
    Beautiful coin. i like 5 oz. round coins. I just wish Money Metals would send these 5 oz. coins in a coin case, or at least offer the option of purchasing a coin case.

    Apostle Islands is one of my top favorite collection coin of ATB. Very beautiful site of nature consisting of river site and rocky arch. Seems realistic. I wish it is more ultra high relief but not bad. It is a huge coin. Will be worth lots of money for years to come.
