Why add this 2012 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful El Yunque to your collection?

This 5 oz. Silver El Yunque was part of the first issue of 2012 and the eleventh issue overall in the America the Beautiful Series, which started in 2010 and continues today. The coin is Puerto Rico's contribution to the series. Part of a mintage of just 24,000 pieces, the coin was struck on a .999 fine silver planchet at the Philadelphia Mint. It is a fantastic choice for Puerto Ricans and those who love wildlife scenery.

Stunning Wildlife Design by Gary Whitley and Michael Gaudioso

The reverse image was designed by Gary Whitley and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso. A tree frog and a parrot sit on a tree branch in El Yunque National Forest. The parrot is partially obscured by an epiphyte plant. "EL YUNQUE" and "PUERTO RICO" are two of the four rim inscriptions. The obverse bears a portrait of President George Washington by John Flanagan.

Nearly Perfect MS69 DMPL with Mercanti Signed Beautiful Parks Series Flag Label

This coin received Professional Coin Grading Service's (PCGS's) second highest grade, Mint State 69, which means that it appears flawless to the unaided eye. PCGS also labeled the coin Deep Mirror Proof-like, thus indicating that its fields are especially reflective. This information has been provided on a label that celebrates the series and bears both the American flag and John Mercanti's signature.
