2015-P America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins

Kisatchie National Forest - Louisiana

The Kisatchie National Forest quarter is the second released in 2015 and the 27th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. Spread across seven parishes in Louisiana, Kisatchie National Forest is divided into five managed units called Ranger Districts that total more than 604,000 acres of public lands. Hidden in the bayous underneath the bald cypress groves and old growth pine lies a world of natural beauty, excitement, learning, recreation, and natural and cultural resources. The name Kisatchie is derived from a tribe of Kichai Indians of the Caddoan Confederacy. It was first established as a national site in 1936.

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. 2015 marks the sixth 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.
