Early Releases Specimen 69
This 2018 Apostle Islands America the Beautiful Coin was submitted for grading to Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) within the first thirty days of release, earning the collectible designation Early Releases. Upon review, NGC found the superbly struck 5 oz. Silver coin to be in virtually perfect Specimen 69 condition. The matte-like finish Specimen issue coin features a strike quality between a Mint State and Proof, inscribed with a "P" Mint mark to distinguish it from the bullion issue.
