Bombay Hook was established in Delaware in 1937 using lands purchased with funds raised from the Federal Duck Stamp Program. Its purpose was to establish a refuge for birds and other creatures along the Atlantic flyway, but today allows for picturesque views and bird-watching opportunities that are considered world-class.

These silver bullion coins will feature identical imagery as found on the circulating America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. Making these strikes unique, however, is their composition and size. Each will be struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver to a diameter of three inches.
