This series of coins are considered the numismatic versions of the US Mint’s America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins™, which themselves are struck with similar designs to those found on the Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. Despite having relatively the same designs, however, both series of silver coins are much larger than their companion quarter dollars. That is because each is struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver with the 2010-dated strikes having a diameter of three inches.

These Yellowstone strikes represent the national park of Wyoming which has the distinction of being the first national park, not only in the United States, but also the world.

2010 America the Beautiful Silver Uncirculated Coins

A total of five 2010-dated America the Beautiful Silver Uncirculated Coins will be issued by the United States Mint:

  • 2010 Hot Springs National Park 5 oz Silver Uncirculated Coin

  • 2010 Yosemite National Park 5 oz Silver Bullion Uncirculated Coin
  • 2010 Grand Canyon National Park 5 oz Silver Bullion Uncirculated Coin
  • 2010 Mount Hood National Forest 5 oz Silver Bullion Uncirculated Coin

These coins were struck by the Mint in 2010, but owing to initial production difficulties for them and the related bullion coins, these numismatic strikes have a release date of early 2011.
