2015 25 Cent 5-oz Silver America the Beautiful Kisatchie NGC SP70 FDI
Louisiana's Beloved Forest Takes Center Stage in This Five Ounce Silver Beauty!
When you think of Louisiana, the image of a thick bayou probably pops up immediately. However, much of the state used to be covered in thick forests of yellow pine. A young nation's hunger for lumber took advantage of this "forester's dream" during the late 1800s and early 1900s, quickly turning the state's tall forests into stump-filled fields. However, due to the ingenuity, persistence and creativity of folks like Caroline Dormon, land across central Louisiana was acquired and replanted with trees again, creating the Kisatchie National Forest.
Today, this forest covers more than 604,000 acres over five separate Ranger Districts spread across seven parishes. This treasure enchants its visitors with breathtaking beauty and majestic wildlife. In 2015, the Kisatchie National Forest was immortalized as part of the America the Beautiful Quarters™ Program. Now, you can bring home a five ounce silver edition of this America the Beautiful Series coin. 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 wild turkey taking flight over a tuft of blue stem grass. Incused edge lettering confirms that your coin is, indeed, ".999 fine silver 5.0 ounce."
