Why purchase this perfect 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful Apostle Islands Specimen Coin?

Wisconsin's Apostle Islands National Lakeshore was established in 1970. Located on Lake Superior, the park is home to eight lighthouses, more than any other national park. This 42nd release of the U.S. Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters series honors the breathtaking natural beauty of just one of the twenty-one islands of the Lakeshore. The coin was struck from 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint, with a diameter of 76.2 mm.

Gorgeous Scenic Lakeshore Design by Richard Masters and Renata Gordon

The coast of the Lakeshore's Devils Island is depicted on the reverse, illustrating the depth and complexity of the island's naturally formed sea caves, with the island's iconic lighthouse in the background. Inscribed "APOSTLE ISLANDS," "WISCONSIN," "2018" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM," with ".999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE" on the smooth edge.

The obverse features John Flanagan's portrait of George Washington created in 1932. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "QUARTER DOLLAR."
