Created in 1936, Homestead National Monument of America sits on the exact location of the first homestead ever created under the original Homestead Act in 1862. That act was signed by President Abraham Lincoln and paved the way for hundreds of thousands of individuals to obtain free land. All they had to do was file some paperwork and then make improvements to the land over a specified period of time for the land to become their own.

Featuring identical designs as those found on the circulating America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, the silver bullion coins will be much larger and struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver. Each will have a diameter of three inches.
