2019 Lowell National Historic Park 5-oz Silver Quarter America the Beautiful PCGS SP70 First Strike - Mercanti Signed Label
Massachusetts America the Beautiful Quarter Pays Tribute to Industrial Revolution
In its early years, the United States of America was primarily an agrarian nation. That all changed in the 1800s when the Industrial Revolution helped shift America to an industrial economy. By the Turn of the Century, America was the world’s economic and industrial juggernaut. No area represents this era better than the Lowell National Historic Park in Lowell, Massachusetts. Established in 1978, several buildings make up the national park and a visitor center helps link the various restored and unrestored sites from the 19th century. Now, this first issue of 2019 in the America the Beautiful series celebrates the area with this five-ounce silver Lowell National Historic Park coin.
The America the Beautiful series has proven extremely popular since it began back in 2010. For those who have been collecting from the start, each release has provided a new and exciting way to discover and appreciate all that America has to offer. And the best way to collect these designs is as a whopping five-ounce, 90% silver coin in stunning Specimen condition! Measuring an incredible 76.2 mm in diameter, it’s nearly twice the size of an American Silver Eagle!
Your coin will come with a smooth satin-like matte finish produced by a vapor blast process. In addition, has been graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as being in stunning Specimen-70 (SP70) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded coin will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, PCGS has certified this piece to be a First Strike (FS) coin, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was verified within the first 30 days of issue. To top it off, your coin will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder along with a label that has been personally signed by John Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint!
The Lowell National Historic Park in Massachusetts is a perfect example of a coin that presents collectors with a scene of America’s history that would likely be overlooked otherwise. It features a depiction of one of Lowell’s “Mill Girls” – young women who were recruited to work in the mills and who lived in supervised, company-owned boarding houses. These women would go on to become one of the first voices for labor by advocating for better working conditions.
