What makes the silver bullion coins unique from the circulating quarter dollars is their composition and their size. Each coin in the series will be struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver and features a diameter of three inches. This makes these new bullion coin series the largest ever produced by the US Mint.

The Yellowstone coin marks the second of fifty-six to be created in the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ series scheduled to run until 2021.

As found on the circulating quarter dollars, the obverse (heads side) will feature a portrait of the First President of the United States, George Washington. The design was the original work of John Flanagan.
