Patiently awaited by collectors and investors alike, Provident Metals is pleased to carry the 2012 Acadia National Park America the Beautiful (ATB), each coin boasting 5-Ounces of .999 Pure Silver. Struck in honor of Maine’s Acadia National Park–which preserves a number of beloved islands and part of the Schoodic Peninsula–it is the third ATB slated for release in 2012.
The ATB Silver Bullion series spotlights fifty-six national parks, forests and monuments–one from each state or national territory (including American Samoa, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, Guam and the US Virgin Islands).
The first National Park established east of the Mississippi, Acadia embodies 47,000 acres of lush woodlands, rolling mountains, freshwater lakes and miles of rocky shorelines. The area is also home to countless animal species, including bobcats, black bears, coyote, deer and more.
First protected by President Wilson in 1916, the region was initially called Lafayette National Park after the Marquis de Lafayette, an influential French advocate of the American Revolution. The site was renamed Acadia National Park in 1929.
Throughout the early years of the twentieth century, prominent philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr worked tirelessly to develop Acadia National Park, funding more than 50 miles of navigable carriage trails and granite bridges for eager tourists. After forest fires ravaged the park in 1947, Rockefeller was largely responsible for funding the repairs, and the park’s majestic wildlife has since regrown.
The reverse of the Acadia National Park ATB was designed by Barbara Fox and features a portrayal of Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, built snugly within Acadia’s craggy coastline, visited by 2.2 million tourists each year. The obverse of each ATB (including the coin’s clad quarter sister-series) features John Flanagan’s 1932 George Washington design.
