National Park of American Samoa is located in the South Pacific, approximately 2,600 miles southwest of Hawaii. It is one of the most remote parks in the U.S. National Park System. The site consists of three volcanic islands: Tutuila, Tau’?, and Ofu and is almost entirely tropical rainforest. The endangered Samoan fruit bat, the subject of the coin’s reverse design, is native to the National Park .
The popular 5 oz. silver ATB series was introduced in 2010. Each issue features one historic location or attraction from each U.S. state or territory. Each coin is struck on 5 oz. .999 fine silver blank.
The reverse design of this issue features the image of two American Samoa fruit bats, a mother and her young. Reverse inscriptions include: NATIONAL PARK, AMERICAN SAMOA, 2020 and E PLURIBUS UNUM. The image was designed by Richard Masters of the AIP program and sculpted by the U.S. Mint’s Phebe Hemphill.
The obverse design is the iconic John Flanagian designed portrait of the First President of the United States, George Washington. The image was first used in 1932 on the circulating U.S quarter dollar. Obverse inscriptions include: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST, and QUARTER DOLLAR.
This familiar design of President Washington is based on the bust sculpted by French artist Jean-Antoine Houdin. The bust is part of the permanent collection of the historic Washington Home site in Mt. Vernon, Virginia.
