Why add the 2018 Block Island 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful Specimen Coin NGC SP69 ER to your collection?
This 2018 Block Island 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful Specimen Coin was graded at the solidly collectible grade of Specimen 69 (SP69) grade by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). It also achieved the coveted Early Releases (ER) designation. Each coin was struck at the Philadelphia Branch of the U.S. Mint on 5 oz. coin blanks made of .999 pure silver.
Block Island, Rhode Island
The coin's spectacular reverse design depicts the iconic North Light lighthouse in the background. In the foreground we see a flying heron. The image was designed by Chris Costello through the AIP program and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill of the U.S. Mint. The obverse of the coin features the John Flanagan image of George Washington, as it had been modified to a lower relief by William Cousins.
This coin was struck using the U.S. Mint's "Uncirculated Finish" also known as the "burnished finish." This finish is achieved by polishing the planchets in a metal-on-metal process prior to striking. The finish has an attractive frosted appearance. SP69 coins have excellent strikes, full design details, stunning mint luster and spectacular eye appeal. They are sought by collectors for their beauty and value. This example is also a coveted ER designated coin.
