Shenandoah got its official start in 1926 when the state of Virginia started acquiring land for the park. In 1935, that land was turned over to the federal government for the creation of Shenandoah. While the scenery throughout the park can usually always be described as pristine, the park is probably best known for the 105-mile Skyline Drive which runs through it.

Each Shenandoah National Park Silver Bullion Coin will be struck from five ounce of .999 fine silver to a diameter of three inches, just like all of the other America the Beautiful Silver Bullion strikes. The reverse side of the strike will be reserved for an image showcasing a portion of the park.

The US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia was the only location to receive special equipment for the striking of the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins. However, no mintmark is typically present on bullion strikes.

Designer & Sculptor

The image of George Washington (first President of the United States) that is featured on the obverse (heads side) of the silver bullion coins was first found on the circulating quarter dollar in 1932. It was designed by John Flanagan.
