The Apostle Islands are a group of 22 islands in Lake Superior off Northern Wisconsin. The islands offer more than 800 plant species, one of the largest black bear concentrations in North America and provide important nesting habitats for a variety of bird species. The Apostle Islands are perhaps most well-known for the numerous sea caves and delicate arches, which in fact are pictured, along with a kayaker, on the reverse of this beautiful .999 fine Silver coin. The obverse of the coin features the iconic John Flanagan portrait of George Washington, along with the words "United States of America", "Liberty", "In God We Trust" and "Quarter Dollar".
APMEX offers a wide range of purchasing options for anyone interested in the America the Beautiful Series. In addition to the single coin, customers can find MintDirect® tubes (http://apmex.pub/
As the 50 State Quarters program came to an end in 2008, the U.S. Mint prepared for the next series of circulating quarters. The America the Beautiful Series launched in 2010 and will continue into 2021, with each of the 56 total coins celebrating a national park or national site from a U.S. state and territory. Each design is available as a circulating quarter, but collectors are more interested in the 5 oz Silver bullion coins, showcasing the exceptional parks and sites in large detail.
