Why buy this 2019 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful San Antonio Missions Historical Park?
The America the Beautiful Series, which began in 2010, continues with this San Antonio Missions Historical Park. The series consists of coins with one national park from each state and territory, as well as the District of Colombia. The city of San Antonio was built on the foundation of the missions, to which this coin pays tribute. This piece was struck on a 5 oz planchet of .999 fine silver, the same standard of purity used for the Silver Eagle Series. It is a fantastic way to start or grow an America the Beautiful collection.
Featuring a Missions Design by Chris Costello
Since 1932, John Flanagan's portrait of President George Washington has featured on American quarters. It does so yet again on this one. The left-side effigy shows the leader with a quiet confidence. "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are inscribed to either side of the image, while "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "QUARTER DOLLAR" are included on the rim above and below it, respectively.
Chris Costello created the reverse design, which was sculpted by Joseph Menna. Paying homage to the missions' Spanish heritage, Costello divided the design into quadrants, a reference to the Colonial Spanish Real. Images in each quadrant represent different aspects of the missions. In the upper left, bells and arches represent community. The missions' Spanish heritage is represented by a lion rampant in the upper right. Framing is referenced by wheat in the lower left. Finally, water in the lower right symbolizes natural resources and irrigation. The rim frame features four inscriptions, including "SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS" and "TEXAS."
