The Frank Church-River of No Return wilderness covers a vast swath of Idaho's rugged mountains and scenic river canyons. The protected area includes the Salmon River Mountains and the river for which they were named, as well as a section of the Clearwater Mountains and the Bighorn Crags. It lies in north central Idaho, northeast of Boise. The Salmon River Canyon is one of the deepest in North America.
The wilderness area is more than 2.36 million acres - the largest of its kind to be located in the lower 48 states. "River of No Return" refers to the Salmon River. In the early days of Idaho's settlement it was possible to float a small boat downstream along the river, but not possible to navigate upstream given the fast water and numerous rapids.
The wilderness also carries the name of Frank Church - the Idaho legislator who was instrumental in its creation.
It is a wild place with some of the most gorgeous scenery in America, but getting a look means you will have to be up for the challenge. No roads or motorized vehicles are allowed. The splendors of this wilderness must be accessed on foot or by horseback.
It is easy, however, to get the beautiful coin commemorating this untouched land - in .999 fine silver with a weight of 5 troy ounces.
Money Metals Exchange offers the 5 ounce America the Beautiful silver (ATB) coin which commemorates the River of No Return Wilderness. It is 50th in the popular series which will ultimately include 56 different and beautiful designs.
The coin's reverse (or tails) side features a man wearing a wide brimmed hat as he rows his drift boat between the treacherous rocks of a Salmon River rapid. The mountains and evergreen tress which line the river canyon stand in the background. The inscriptions read "River of No Return Wilderness", "Idaho", "E Pluribus Unum" and "2019".
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 (.999 Fine Silver, 5.0 Ounce) of the coin inscribed on the coin's rim and is guaranteed by the US government.
A silver coin is always a great way 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.
