2016 National Park Service Silver Dollar

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed legislation creating the National Park Service. On the 100th anniversary of this signal event in our nation's history, the United States Mint struck commemoratives honoring the park service, the pioneers of conservation who made it possible, and those who have protected their legacy ever since. The National Park Service is an agency of the United States federal government that manages: all U.S. national parks, many American national monuments, and other conservation and historical properties with various title designations. The NPS is charged with a dual role of preserving the ecological and historical integrity of the places entrusted to its management while also making them available and accessible for public use and enjoyment.

The obverse of the 2016 National Park Silver Dollar features Yellowstone National Park's Old Faithful geyser and a bison. Inscriptions are 'LIBERTY,' 'NATIONAL PARK SERVICE CENTENNIAL,' 'IN GOD WE TRUST,' '1916' and '2016.' The reverse depicts a Latina Folklórico dancer and the National Park Service logo, representing the multi-faceted cultural experience found in America's national parks. Inscriptions are 'UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,' 'E PLURIBUS UNUM,' '$1,' 'HERITAGE,' 'CULTURE' and 'PRIDE.' Each Silver Dollar is struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 90% Silver, is 40 mm in diameter, and weighs 26.73 grams.

This example is in Proof condition and comes in its original mint packaging.

Over 290 million people visit parks and monuments managed by the National Park Service Each Year. Considering this massive potential interest in these commemoratives and the low mintages, we urge you to secure them for your collection before they sell out.
