2016 Cumberland Gap Silver American the Beautiful coin in original Gem BU condition!
The Cumberland Gap is near the tri-state convergence of Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia, and has historically served as a key passageway from the east coast toward the Mississippi valley. It is but one of many breaks (passes) in the Appalachian mountain chain, but is the only pass of significance in the Cumberland stretch of mountains.
It has been recognized as a place of significance for well over a century, but was only added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980. Today it serves as a National Park and recreation area and is overseen by the National Park Service.
This is the second issue in the 2016 year series of America the Beautiful five-ounce coins. The series began in 2010 in conjunction with the America the Beautiful quarter series which replaced the Statehood quarter series in circulation. This series is a beautiful retrospect into the national treasures of the United States and has been issued at the rate of five new designs per year. The series is set to end in 2021.
