Description

Honor the magnificent beauty of the American West with the 2014 Arches National Park 5 oz Silver America the Beautiful coin.

Struck by the United States Mint, each coin is composed of .999 silver, emulating the designs of the ATB Quarter series in five pure ounces of silver.

The reverse features the world-famous Delicate Arch. This massive sandstone monolith, carved by time and wind, captures the essence of the treasured national park. The rim reads ARCHES, UTAH, 2014 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.

Keeping style with the quarter, the obverse features the profile of George Washington, along with the words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, QUARTER DOLLAR, LIBERTY and IN GOD WE TRUST.

Arches National Park was originally designated a National Monument in April 1929 by President Herbert Hoover. In 1938, President Franklin D. Roosevelt enlarged the park to protect its many scenic features, while establishing facilities that support tourism. Arches officially became a National Park in 1971.
