APMEX, a leading online Precious Metals retailer based in Oklahoma City, has announced the first 2019 America the Beautiful release is now available to pre-order. The 2019 5 oz Silver ATB Lowell National Historical Park coin, marks the 46th overall release in the series.
As the 50 State Quarters program came to an end in 2008, the U.S. Mint prepared for the next series of circulating quarters. The America the Beautiful Series launched in 2010 and will continue into 2021, with each of the 56 total coins celebrating a national park or national site from a U.S. state and territory. Each design is available as a circulating quarter, but collectors are more interested in the 5 oz Silver bullion coins, showcasing the exceptional parks and sites in large detail.
The city of Lowell was first settled in the 17th century and became an important manufacturing center in the 1820s. The facilities were built as a reaction to Great Britain’s mill communities, so instead of being cramped and mostly dirty, the factories of Lowell were built with ample green space and accompanying clean dormitories.
Lowell attracted immigrants as well as migrants from within New England and Quebec, including a large proportion of young women. These “Mill Girls”, who earned cash wages and lived in supervised, company-owned boarding houses, became an important voice for labor by advocating for better working conditions, supporting abolition and embracing education.
“We are excited to once again offer this ever-popular series to our customers,” APMEX Vice President of Merchandising Ryan Boyles said. “The America the Beautiful series is treasured by collectors, for its unique designs and quality detail, while investors enjoy the .999 fine Silver content and 5 oz weight. We love seeing customers add to, or begin, an America the Beautiful series as each release comes around.”
This 46th America the Beautiful release depicts a young woman working at a power loom with the Boott Mill clock tower and smokestack seen in the background. The obverse, like each prior coin in the series, features the iconic John Flanagan portrait of George Washington, along with the words “United States of America”, “Liberty”, “In God We Trust” and “Quarter Dollar”.
APMEX offers a variety of purchasing options for anyone interested in the America the Beautiful Series. In addition to the single coin, customers can find MintDirect® tubes, available exclusively at APMEX. This process ensures each 10-coin tube was sealed in protective plastic immediately after being removed from the mint-sealed boxes, guaranteeing the tubes remain unopened, unsorted and unsearched.
