Why add the 5 oz. Silver Saratoga America the Beautiful Coin to your collection?
The U.S. Mint introduced the America the Beautiful Quarter series in 2010, in conjunction with the Mint’s first ever 5 oz. coin, their largest silver bullion coin to date. The 5 oz. coins replicate the clad quarters used in circulation but are more substantial in size and weight, also they are eligible for precious metals IRAs. Philadelphia minted, this 2015-P 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful Saratoga Specimen coin contains 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, weighs 155.5 grams, and measures a sizeable three inches (76.2mm) in diameter.
The reverse of this 30th release in the series, created by Barbara Fox and Renata Gordon, depicts the moment General John Burgoyne surrendered his sword to General Horatio Gates, illustrating the beginning of the end of the Revolutionary War. “BRITISH SURRENDER 1777”, “SARATOGA”, “NEW YORK”, “2015” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM” accompany the image. The familiar 1932 George Washington profile by John Flanagan in 1932 adorns the obverse. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “LIBERTY”, “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “QUARTER DOLLAR”. The smooth edge is inscribed “.999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE”.
This 2015-P 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful Saratoga coin is graded a near perfect SP69 by NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation), a highly respected coin authentication company. This Specimen coin bears a “P” Mint mark and is struck largely for collectors with a matte-like finish and high quality strike.
