Following the success of the state quarter program—which became a favorite among new and seasoned coin collectors—the US Mint introduced the America the Beautiful series of 5 oz silver coins in 2010. Five coins have been and will continue to be released each year until the 56-coin series reaches a conclusion in 2021.
The ATB series commemorates national parks, historical monuments, and other treasured sites from all US states and territories. This series is highly collectible because of the ongoing annual releases and the large 5 oz format of these silver coins.
The newest 2018 release—Voyageurs National Park from Minnesota—is now available for pre-sale at Provident. This beautiful coin captures a picturesque scene of a loon swimming through a quiet lake, with a rocky cliff in the background. Each coin in the series features a portrait of George Washington on the obverse.
Mintages of each ATB coin have varied at the mint; but the latest releases are trending toward lower mintages. In fact, the new Voyageurs coin, along with the previous two 2018 releases—Apostle Islands and Pictured Rocks—have all sold out at the mint.
Fortunately, Provident still has each of these coins in stock. If your goal is to collect the whole ATB series, don’t wait to pre-order your Voyageurs silver coin. A hesitation could mean a missed opportunity due to limited mintages.
