Description

Enjoy the natural wonders of Shenandoah National Park from the comfort of your own home with this America the Beautiful 5 oz Silver round

Encompassing parts of the Blue Ridge and Hawksbill Mountains in Virginia, nearly 40 percent of the National Park is wilderness and protected by the National Wilderness Preservation System.

Gaze at the beautiful landscape on the reverse of this 5 oz piece that depicts a hiker peaking off of Little Stony Man Summit. The rocky countryside is surrounded by inscriptions of SHENANDOAH, E PLURIBUS UNUM, VIRGINIA and 2014.

George Washington’s familiar portrait remains on the obverse.

The highest peak at Shenandoah National Park can be found on Hawksbill Mountain at 4,051 feet. Skyline Drive is the park’s most well-known feature, especially in the fall as the leaves change colors on the 105-mile road. Visitors also enjoy camping, waterfalls, hiking and more.

America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series from the U.S. Mint that portrays some of the nation’s most precious parks and treasures. Five coins will be released each year through 2021.
