2014-P America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins?

Great Sand Dunes National Park

The Great Sand Dunes National Park quarter is the fourth released in 2014 and the 24nd overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters? Program. Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve has the tallest dunes in North America forming the centerpiece of the site?s diverse landscape of grasslands, wetlands, conifer and aspen forests, alpine lakes, and tundra. These can be experienced through hiking, sand sledding, splashing in the Medano Creek, and watching wildlife. The Great Sand Dunes National Park was first established as a national site on March 17, 1932 (47 Stat. 2506). The reverse design features a father and son playing in the sand next to the creek bed. The distinctive mountains and sand dunes are featured in the background.

America the Beautiful Quarters Program
Investors can now choose bullion coins that honor some of our Nation's most treasured national parks and sites ? majestic places that truly make us "America the Beautiful."

About the Program
In 2010, the United States Mint began to issue 56 quarter-dollar coins featuring designs depicting national parks and other national sites as part of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters? Program. 2014 marks the fifth year of the program and features the next 5 quarters.

Common Obverse
Each coin in the series features a common obverse (heads side) with the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, which has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.

Release Schedule
Each year, the public will see five new national site designs depicted on the reverse (tails side) of America the Beautiful Quarters. The United States Mint will issue these quarters in the order in which the honored site was first established as a national site.

Silver Bullion Quarters
The United States Mint will also mint and issue unique silver bullion coins that are exact duplicates of each of the America the Beautiful Quarters. The bullion coins will be made of .999 fine silver, have a diameter of three inches and weigh five ounces. The fineness and weight will be edge-incused on the bullion coins. The United States Mint will issue these coins under the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin? Program.

United States Mint America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins are investment-grade silver bullion coins. Their weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the U.S. government.Uncirculated Coins for Collectors
The United States Mint also offers collectible, uncirculated versions of the popular gold and silver American Coins. All Uncirculated Coins carry the same stunning designs found on their Proof counterparts.

The term "uncirculated" refers to the specialized minting process used to create these coins. Although they are similar in appearance to Bullion Coins, these uncirculated coins are distinguished by the presence of a mint mark, indicating their production facility, and by the use of burnished coin blanks, which are hand-fed into specially-adapted coining presses one at a time.

Our "vintage" US Mint products have been previously owned. They are hand-inspected to ensure they are complete and include all original US Mint packaging. Vintage coins may show some effects of aging and packaging may have some minimal wear and tear.
