We're Not Kidding -- This Bombay Hook 5-oz Silver Coin is For the Birds!
In 1679, Peter Bayard of New York purchased an area of marshland from Mechacksett, the Chief of the Kahansink Indians. That land was originally known as "Canaresse," which translates to "Shaggy Bushes" or "Thicket". Eventually, the land was renamed "Bompies Hoeck" -- Dutch for "Little-Tree Point." Over the centuries, that moniker has evolved. Now, this collection of more than 16,000 acres of marsh is known as Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. For countless animals, fish and birds, it's known by something else -- home!
Started in 1938 as a project of an African-American company of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), this refuge is a pristine staging area and rest stop for migratory shorebirds and waterfowl that travel the Atlantic Flyway. Here, wildlife of all kinds breed and thrive while visitors, volunteers and staff work to protect, study and enjoy its inhabitants. It's American wildlife conservation at its most gorgeous, and a perfect choice for Delaware's entry 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 two Blue Herons wading in the refuge's marshes. Incused edge lettering confirms that your coin is, indeed, ".999 fine silver 5.0 ounce."
