Located approximately 300 miles north of Las Vegas and also in Nevada, the park was established relatively recently in 1986. However, a portion of the park had been a part of the national park system as far back as 1922. Within the park’s boundaries, visitors find scenic mountains, ancient bristlecone pines and the ornate Lehman Caves.

As with all of the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins, the Great Basin strike will be minted from five ounces of .999 fine silver to a diameter of three inches. Since the coin’s obverse and reverse designs will be identical to those found on the circulating America the Beautiful Quarters®, the edge of the bullion coins will feature lettering indicating its weight and purity.

U.S. Mint Production Facility

The Mint does not typically strike a mintmark on any of its bullion products, however the Mint’s facility in Philadelphia was the only one to receive special equipment for their production.

Designer & Sculptor

A portrait of George Washington, first President of the United States, is featured on the obverse (heads side) of all of the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins. It is the same portrait that will be on the circulating quarter dollars and was first featured on the quarter in 1932.

No official design information on the Great Basin coin has as of yet been released by the US Mint. It will, however, contain a scene of a portion of the Great Basin National Park on its reverse.
