The Arches area in Utah first came under federal control in 1929 when it was established as a national monument. The size under protection changed a few times before it officially became a national park in 1971. Today, the park encompasses over 2,000 sandstone arches and draws in hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

The US Mint will strike each Arches National Park Silver Bullion Coin from five ounces of .999 fine silver. Each will have a diameter of three inches and feature obverse and reverse designs identical to the circulating America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.

2014 America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins

A total of five America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins will be issued by the US Mint in 2014:

  • 2014 Great Smoky Mountains National Park 5 oz Silver Bullion Coin representing Tennessee

  • 2014 Arches National Park 5 oz Silver Bullion Coin representing Utah

John Flanagan designed the original portrait of George Washington (first President of the United States) that is featured on the obverse (heads side) of the coin. It was first found on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar.
