WASHINGTON — The United States Mint (Mint) will begin accepting orders for the 2019 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ honoring San Antonio Missions National Historical Park (product code 19AM) on Aug. 29 at noon EST. The coin is priced at $154.95.
The reverse (tails) of this coin pays tribute to the missions in a depiction of elements of the original Spanish Colonial Real coin. The four quadrants of the design contain symbols of the missions: wheat symbolizes farming; the arches and bell symbolize community; a lion represents Spanish cultural heritage; and a symbol of the San Antonio River represents irrigation methods and life-sustaining resources. Inscriptions are “SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS,” “TEXAS,” “2019,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The obverse (heads) features a 1932 restored portrait of George Washington.
A presentation case holds each encapsulated coin, which comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Mintage is set at 20,000 units. There is no household order limit.
America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins are struck in .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint. These unique coins are three inches in diameter, weigh five troy ounces, and bear the same designs featured on their America the Beautiful Quarters® Program Coin counterparts.
