Why purchase the 5 oz. America the Beautiful Silver Specimen coin featuring Wisconsin's Apostle Islands?

A breathtaking view of Devils Island, one of the twenty-one islands of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is Wisconsin, is featured on this 42nd release of the U.S. Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters series. The specimen finish coin is struck from an impressive 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia branch of the Mint.

Stunning Image Featuring Sea Caves

The reverse is beautifully designed by Richard Masters and sculpted by Renata Gordon, depicting the picturesque lighthouse and sea caves of Devils Island. Inscriptions include "APOSTLE ISLANDS," "WISCONSIN," "2018" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM," with ".999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE" on the smooth edge.

The image of the first U.S. President as sculpted by John Flanagan in 1932 graces the obverse. George Washington's portrait is accompanied by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "QUARTER DOLLAR."

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.

This gorgeous 42nd release of the U.S. Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters series belongs in your collection!
