Apostle Islands National Lakeshore represents Wisconsin in the America the Beautiful silver coin series from the US Mint. The release of the coin design was one of two honoring National Lakeshores in 2018 and one of three for Upper Midwest states along the Great Lakes along with Michigan and Minnesota issues. Provident Metals currently has near-perfect 2018 ATB Apostle Islands National Lakeshore 5 oz Silver Coins available to you for purchase online.
When you purchase a 2018 ATB Apostle Islands National Lakeshore 5 oz Silver Coin from Provident Metals in this listing, you will receive a near-perfect coin. Certified Mint State 69 by the NGC, these coins showcase full, original mint luster and come with no more than two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this level include only minuscule contact marks and hairlines present outside of the primary focal points.
These coins also come with two other designations. DPL means deeply-mirrored, proof-like, and refers to the proof-like visuals that showcase on BU versions of a coin. The ER, or Early Release, designation is for coins received for grading within 30 days of the original release from the US Mint.
The obverse side of the 2018 ATB Apostle Islands National Lakeshore Silver Coins includes a portrait of President George Washington. Captured in left-profile relief by John Flanagan in 1932, this bust of Washington is based on a 1786 bust of Washington. The design field includes inscriptions of United States of America, Liberty, In God We Trust, and Quarter Dollar.
On the reverse field of the 2018 ATB Apostle Islands National Lakeshore 5 oz Silver Coins, you will find a depiction of a kayaker enjoying the great outdoors on Lake Superior. The kayaker is shown rowing past the sea caves that Lake Superiors waves have created on Devils Island. The popular Devils Island Lighthouse is depicted in the background field. The inscriptions on this face of the coin read Apostle Islands, Wisconsin, E Pluribus Unum, and 2018.
Apostle Islands National Lakeshore is located along the shores at the northern tip of Wisconsin on Lake Superior. It includes 69,372 acres of shoreline and 21 islands off the coast of Wisconsin. The park was established for protection in 1970.
