Why add the 5 oz. America the Beautiful Bombay Hook to your collection?
Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge, located on Delaware Bay in Delaware, is the subject of the 29th release of the America the Beautiful Quarters Series. Created in 1937, the nearly 16,000 acre refuge serves as a breeding ground for migrating birds and other wildlife. This Specimen Silver coin measures three considerable inches (76.2mm) in diameter, is 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver (155.5 grams), and is inscribed “.999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE” along the smooth edge. The coin is guaranteed by the U.S. Mint and is eligible for precious metals IRAs.
The reverse, created by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, depicts a great blue heron and a great egret within their natural environment; the refuge’s tidal salt marsh. Inscriptions are “BOMBAY HOOK”, “DELAWARE”, “2015” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM”. Designed by New York sculptor John Flanagan, Washington’s portrait has been featured on the quarter dollar obverse since 1932. Inscription are: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “LIBERTY”, “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “QUARTER DOLLAR”.
This 2015-P 5 oz. Specimen Silver Bombay Hook coin is a special collector's edition with the Philadelphia "P" Mint mark, making it easily distinguishable from the higher mintage bullion version. NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation), a highly respected coin authentication company, has graded this America the Beautiful Silver Specimen with a matte-like finish and a high quality strike, a near perfect SP69.
