Why purchase this 5 oz. Silver 2019-P America the Beautiful Specimen Missions?
Now in its tenth year, the U.S Mint's America the Beautiful Series continues to take collectors on a tour of America's national parks. This 49th issue in the series is Texas's edition. It honors the San Antonio Missions, which created a foundation for the city that exists today. Like the bullion version of the coin, this piece was struck from 5 oz of .999 fine silver. Unlike the bullion coin, it has a specimen finish and bears the "P" mint mark of the Philadelphia Mint. The coin will arrive in GEM Specimen condition in its original packaging from the mint.
Poignant Missions Design by Chris Costello
This coin features an obverse that is common to all collectible coins in the series. At the center is John Flanagan's left-side portrait of President George Washington, which has been a mainstay of America's quarters since its debut in 1932. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "QUARTER DOLLAR" are inscribed along the rim, while the effigy is flanked by the inscriptions "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Joseph Menna sculpted a design by Chris Costello for the reverse. It pays tribute to the history of one of Texas's jewels. The design is divided into quadrants, a nod to the Colonial Spanish Real. Each quadrant bears a symbol of the missions. Clockwise from the upper left, they include arches and a bell, which represent community, a lion, which harks back to the city's Spanish heritage, a symbolic representation of the San Antonio River, a reference to the missions' natural resources and irrigation methods, and wheat, which is for farming. Inscriptions on the rim include "TEXAS" and "SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS."
