APMEX, Inc., a leading Precious Metals e-retailer based in Oklahoma City, is pleased to announce the latest release in the extremely successful America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ series is now available for pre-order. The 2018 5 oz Silver ATB Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, MI, marks the first release of 2018 and 41st overall in the series.
Named for the 15 miles of colorful sandstone cliffs located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula along Lake Superior, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore contains caves, natural archways, waterfalls and even sand dunes. The reverse of this beautiful .999 fine Silver coin depicts the Chapel Rock formation, an archway with one single tree growing from the top. The obverse of the coin, 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.
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.
