Brand New and Available for Pre-Order 2012 5 oz Silver Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park 14th in the “America the Beautiful” Series!
Already a major tourist attraction by the 1840s, Hawai’i Volcanoes became a national park on August 1, 1916. The park was created to preserve the natural setting of the Kilauea and Mauna Loa volcanoes. Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes on Earth, helping to make the park one of the most popular visitor attractions in Hawaii.
The park’s 500 plus square miles features a range of climates from rain forests to barren deserts, plus some of the rarest and most exotic flora and fauna on the planet. The new 2012 5 oz Silver Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park coin joins the other 13 national parks in the America the Beautiful Series and features:
