2010 Silver 5 oz ATB Yosemite NP Early Release NGC SP69

These 2010 Silver 5 oz Yosemite National Park, California – America the Beautiful – graded coins began their journey leaving from the Philadelphia Mint in a sealed monster box. Each ATB sealed monster box comes with 10 rolls of 10 coins per roll, totaling 100 coins per box. In order to be graded, these ATB coins went on to NGC, which is a reputable 3rd party coin grading company. Each graded coin was then sealed in a hard case and certified with its specific grade. This certification process results in coins that carry a higher value than ungraded coins of the same release.

Highlights

  • Contains: 5 Troy oz of .999 fine silver.
  • The largest silver bullion coins ever issued by the United States Mint.
  • Graded Singles come sealed in a hard case, independently graded and numbered by NGC.
  • Design of the coins duplicates exactly (though enlarged) each of the America the Beautiful Quarters series.
  • Obverse: Common to entire series, depicting George Washington in a restored version of the portrait created by John Flanagan for the 1932 Washington quarter.
  • Reverse: The reverse design depicts the iconic El Capitan, which rises more than 3,000 feet above the valley floor and is the largest monolith of granite in the world. Yosemite was provided federal protection in 1864 through the Yosemite Grant, passed by Congress and signed by President Lincoln. It later achieved National Park status in 1890. The well know natural resources found in the Park are so numerous, it is no wonder that annually, nearly four million people visit. From the magnificent Bridalveil Fall, to the giant Sequoias, solid granite cliffs, and vast wilderness areas, there is no end to the wonder of this place. This ATB coin nobly commemorates Yosemite by its striking design of El Capitan.
  • Reverse Design – Designer: Joseph Menna; Sculptor: Phebe Hemphill.
  • Edge: Smooth edge inscribed with the coin specifications: ".999 Fine Silver 5.0 Ounce."

History

Authorization for 5 oz 0.999 fine silver ATB coins was enacted in 2008. With the America's Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-456), popular series was born. The designs of America the Beautiful 5 oz coins replicate those of the US Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters. The bullion coins are three inches in diameter and have a nominal face value of 25 cents. These are the first five ounce, three inch, 0.999 fine silver bullion coins ever produced by the United States Mint. The fineness and weight are edge-incused on the coins.

These unique silver bullion coins feature reverse designs depicting national parks and other national sites in each state. Included are District of Columbia and U.S. territories, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands and Northern Mariana Islands. The coins are being issued in the order each featured site was established as a national park or site. Investors can now choose bullion coins that honor some of our Nation's most treasured national parks and sites. Those featured are amazing, majestic places, which truly make us "America the Beautiful."

Investment Grade Bullion

ATB silver bullion coins are investment-grade bullion coins, with their weight, content and purity guaranteed by the U.S. government. The coins are also legal tender, although their quarter-dollar face value is merely symbolic. ATB silver bullion coins sell at prevailing silver market prices, plus a moderate premium to cover production and other costs. Silver is typically the lowest-priced precious metal; making these bullion coins an affordable choice for most investors and collectors.

Distinguishing Bullion and Uncirculated

There are three ways to distinguish between Bullion and Uncirculated ATBs.

  • Under the "In God we Trust" inscription, the uncirculated coins feature a "P" symbol representing the Philadelphia mint, whereas the bullion coins do not have a mintmark.
  • Uncirculated coins are vapor blasted after minting, giving them a matte finish, while bullion coins have a shinier finish.
  • The uncirculated coin also comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Mint and is placed inside a plastic capsule and then in a mint-issued box.
