Why buy this 5 oz. Silver Specimen 2019-P America the Beautiful Missions?
The America the Beautiful Series has enamored collectors since its debut in 2010. The series consists of coins representing each US state, territory, and the District of Colombia with a national park design. This piece celebrates the San Antonio Missions, which laid the foundation for one of America's greatest cities. This collectible version of the coin has a specimen finish, which is a hybrid between a business strike and a proof. It also bears the Philadelphia Mint's "P" mint mark. It was struck at that facility on a 5 oz plannchet of .999 fine silver.
Striking San Antonio Missions Design by Chris Costello
All coins in the America the Beautiful Series feature the same obverse design, John Flanagan's left-side portrait of President George Washington. He is flanked by two inscriptions, "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "QUARTER DOLLAR" are included along the rim.
On the reverse is a design by Chris Costello. Sculpted by Joseph Menna, it is divided into quadrants, just like the Spanish Colonial Real. Each quadrant features a symbol of the missions. The symbols include arches and a bell for community, wheat for farming, a lion for Spanish heritage, and the San Antonio River, which represents natural resources and irrigation. Four inscriptions on a rim frame include "SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS" and "TEXAS."
Nearly Perfect SP69 FS
The experts at Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) certified that this coin is in Specimen 69 condition. To receive that grade, a coin must appear perfect to the naked eye. PCGS also certified the piece First Strikes, thus indicating that it was submitted for grading no more than 30 days after its release from the mint.
