Why purchase this Specimen 2019-P 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful Missions?
Now in its tenth year, the America the Beautiful Series continues with this coin, which honors the San Antonio Missions. The missions laid the foundation for what is today the city of San Antonio. This collectible version of the coin is easily distinguished from its bullion counterpart thanks to its specimen finish and the presence of the Philadelphia Mint's "P" mint mark. Like the bullion issue, this piece was struck from 5 oz of .999 fine silver.
Nostalgic San Antonio Missions Design by Chris Costello
Like all other issues in this series - and American quarters since 1932 - the obverse bears John Flanagan's left-side portrait of America's first President, George Washington. He is joined by four inscriptions, including "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "QUARTER DOLLAR." The other two read, "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Joseph Menna sculpted Chris Costello's reverse design. Referencing the Colonial Spanish Real, the image is divided into quadrants. Each one features a symbol of the missions, with wheat representing farming, the San Antonio River representing irrigation, a lion referencing the missions' Spanish heritage, and arches and a bell, symbols of community. Four inscriptions along the rim include "SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS" and "TEXAS."
Impeccable SP70 FS Flag Label
