Why order this America the Beautiful 2019-P 5 oz. Silver Specimen Missions?
This forty-ninth issue in the America the Beautiful Series is perfect for Texans and other Americans who have an interest in the nation's history. The coin honors the San Antonio Missions, which helped to settle and build the area that has since become one of the biggest cities in Texas. Unlike the bullion version of the coin, this piece sports a specimen finish, which is a bullion/proof hybrid. It is also distinguishable from the bullion issue in that it bears a mint mark, the "P" of the Philadelphia Mint.
Exquisite San Antonio Missions Design by Chris Costello
John Flanagan's left-side portrait of President George Washington features on the obverse, as it has with American quarters since 1932. The coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and face value, "QUARTER DOLLAR," are included on the rim, while "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are inscribed to either side of the effigy.
The reverse design pays homage to the history of the San Antonio Missions. Designed by Chris Costello and sculpted by Joseph Menna, the image is divided into quadrants, a nod to the Spanish Colonial Real. Symbols in the quadrants include arches and a bell, a lion, a symbol of the San Antonio River, and wheat. They represent community, Spanish cultural heritage, irrigation, and farming, respectively. "TEXAS" and "SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS" are among four inscriptions on the rim frame.
Virtually Flawless SP69 ER
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in Specimen 69 condition. That means that it appears perfect to the naked eye. NGC also labeled the piece Early Releases, which indicates that it was submitted to them within 30 days of its initial release from the mint.
