In 2010, the U.S. Mint launched its highly anticipated America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin Program, and now you can add the latest issue to your collection: the 2012 Denali National Park coin. This beautiful coin, like the others in the series, contains five ounces of .999 fine Silver and is backed by the U.S. government.
Established in 1917 to protect wildlife populations of the Alaska Interior, Denali National Park spans more than 6 million acres with habitats ranging from forest to tundra. The diverse landscapes of Denali are home to a wide range of wildlife, including grizzly bears, moose, gray wolves and snowshoe hares.
The reverse of this large Silver coin shows one of these majestic animals, the Dall sheep, in front of the awe-inspiring Mount McKinley, which at 20,320 feet is the highest mountain peak in North America. Surrounding the image is the text “Denali,” “Alaska” and “E Pluribus Unum,” along with the date, 2012. The obverse features the same design as the Washington quarters.
This beautiful coin is the final release of 2012 and 15th overall in the series. It would make a great addition to any America the Beautiful collection, or could be a perfect way to start collecting this series! Order yours today!
