The America the Beautiful Series from the United States Mint features unique designs for each of the 50 states, Washington D.C., and the five overseas territories of the nation. The first territory featured in the collection was the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico with a design honoring the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Forest system. Right now, you can buy the 2012 ATB El Yunque 5 oz Silver Coin in near-perfect condition online at Provident Metals.
Your 2012 ATB El Yunque 5 oz Silver Coin purchased in this listing comes with a Mint State 69 certification from the PCGS. Coins in this condition are considered near-perfect specimens and exhibit full, original mint luster with no more than two minor detracting flaws present. Those flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
On the obverse side of 2012 ATB El Yunque 5 oz Silver Coins, you will find the left-profile portrait of President George Washington created by John Flanagan present. This design was created in 1932 for the US circulation quarter in honor of the presidents 200th birthday. It continues in use on that coin to this day and is on the obverse of every ATB Silver coin.
The reverse face of 2012 ATB El Yunque 5 oz Silver Coins is a depiction of a Puerto Rican parrot and coqui tree frog found in the tropical rainforests of El Yunque National Forest. Once a Spanish colony in the New World, the jungles of Puerto Rico that now encompass El Yunque National Forest were first established as a natural preserve by Spains King Alfonso XII in 1876.
Though the Spanish originally set aside the land of El Yunque as a protected natural preserve, US President Theodore Roosevelt made it a federally protected preserve in 1903 after the United States took over control of the island following the Spanish-American War.
These 2012 ATB El Yunque 5 oz Silver Coins are bullion versions of the release, but the PCGS notes each one is PL or proof-like with hints of frosted designs. Each coin is housed in a protective plastic slab.
