The U.S. Mint issued its first 2018 America the Beautiful five-ounce silver uncirculated coin, “Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore,” last week.
Struck in .999 per cent Fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint, the America the Beautiful five-ounce silver coins are unique in that they measure 7.62 centimetres in diameter. The designs featured on these coins replicate their America the Beautiful Quarters program counterparts.
The reverse side of the coin depicts Chapel Rock and the white pine tree that grows atop. Inscriptions include “PICTURED ROCKS,” “MICHIGAN,” “2018,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
The obverse features a 1932 restored portrait of George Washington.
