2018 Voyageurs National Park 5-oz Silver America the Beautiful PCGS MS69 DMPL First Strike - Mercanti Signed Label
Celebrating Some of the Midwest’s Natural Beauty
The state of Minnesota goes by many titles; “The North Star State,” “The Land of 10,000 Lakes,” and “The Gopher State” just to name a few. But the state is also a land of extreme natural beauty. One area that is particularly beautiful is the Voyageurs National Park. With more than 40% of the park made up of water, Voyageurs is a literal maze of interconnected water highways. The park was established in 1975 and today thousands of visitors each year enjoy canoeing, kayaking and camping in its pristine wilderness. Now, this third issue of 2018 in the America the Beautiful series celebrates the area with this five ounce silver Voyageurs National Park coin. And to make it even more incredible, it has been sonically sealed in a protective coin holder that includes a label personally signed by the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint John Mercanti!
- THE LATEST IN THE "AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL" SERIES – This 2018 five ounce Silver Voyageurs National Park coin is the third issue of 2018 and the 43rd overall in the America the Beautiful series, which began in 2010.
- STUNNING NATURAL SCENERY – The design features a common loon – the state bird of Minnesota – with a rock cliff and majestic trees in the background. It also displays the words “"VOYAGEURS," "MINNESOTA," "2018" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The word “voyageur” is French for “traveler,” and it was French travelers who were among the first Europeans in Minnesota. These pioneers traveled throughout the state’s waterways trading furs with Native Americans.
- A SERIES OF FIRSTS – Each coin in the America the Beautiful series was struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 99.9% fine silver. These are the largest ever quarter coins struck, measuring three inches in diameter.
- UNITED STATES LEGAL TENDER – Each America the Beautiful coin is twenty-five cents legal tender in the United States.
- GRADED IN NEAR-PERFECT UNCIRCULATED CONDITION – Your coin has been graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) to be in Mint State-69 Deep Mirror Proof-Like (MS69 DMPL) condition, a distinction that means your almost-flawless coin will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections -- well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series.
- KEY FIRST STRIKE CERTIFICATION – Your coin will also be certified as a First Strike (FS) coin by PCGS, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was verified within the first 30 days of issue.
- AN AUTOGRAPHED LABEL! – Your 2018 Five Ounce Silver America the Beautiful Voyageurs National Park coin will also be sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with a white core insert. Inside that holder, you'll find another phenomenal feature – a label hand-signed by the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint John Mercanti!
