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, those pioneers of conservation who made it possible and those who have protected their legacy ever since. To celebrate the Anniversary the Mint struck Proof and BU versions of a $5 Gold coins (featuring John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt), A Silver Dollar (featuring 'Old faithful' and a bison), and a clad 50-Cent Piece (featuring a hiker and small child discovering a frog).
Elizabeth Jones was the Chief Engraver from 1981 to 1990. She holds two distinctions: She is the only female Chief Engraver to ever hold the position and she was the last Chief Engraver appointed by the President of the United States. In her case, Ronald Reagan appointed her in 1981. As a testament to this achievement, each NGC coin label prominently features her hand-signed signature.
What a great way to celebrate 'America's best idea'! Order yours today.
