Featured on the reverse of the coin will be a design emblematic of Olympic National Park, which is located in the state of Washington. It will be the same design as found on the coins of the circulating United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters™ Program as they are required to be identical by the authorizing America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008.

Even though the coins may have identical imagery, their specifications will be quite different. For instance, these bullion coins are struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver to a diameter of three inches making them the largest bullion coins produced by the Mint.

Designer & Sculptor

The America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins feature obverse (obverse) and reverse (tails side) designs identical to the circulating quarter dollars issued at approximately the same time. As such, the obverse contains a version of John Flanagan’s portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States. Washington has been on the quarter since 1932.

Susan Gamble designed the reverse to show a Roosevelt Elk standing on a gravel bar of the Hoh River with the iconic Mount Olympus off in the distance. It was sculpted by Michael Gaudioso.
