"America's Favorite Drive" -- Immortalized in Five Ounces of Silver!
Route 66 may forever hold the title of America's most iconic highway. However, when it comes to the country's favorite drive, one is the clear winner -- the Blue Ridge Parkway. Spanning 469 miles from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina to the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, this iconic road is an elongated National Park in its own right. Built through multiple public works projects during the Great Depression, the Blue Ridge Parkway has been called the "museum of the managed American countryside" -- exhibiting how the nation's early settlers lived and worked within the Appalachian Highlands.
But it's not all just history! Breathtaking views, engineering marvels, lush landscapes and eye-catching wildlife line the parkway from end to end. By car, by foot, by bike or by tent, the Blue Ridge Parkway is a North Carolina treasure. So, it's no surprise that the parkway was chosen as the state's representative in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. Now, you can bring home a five ounce silver edition of this coin from 2015. Struck in a weighty five ounces of 99.9% pure silver by the Philadelphia Mint, each coin has a massive diameter of three inches and thickness of over four millimeters, but still has a legal tender value of 25 cents!
One side features John Flanagan's restored 1932 portrait of George Washington, while the other side depicts a curving road approaching a mountain tunnel with North Carolina's state flower, the Flowering Dogwood, blooming in the foreground. Incused edge lettering confirms that your coin is, indeed, ".999 fine silver 5.0 ounce."
