Product details

About the Block Island NWR silver 5 oz coin

On the obverse side of the coin, we see the image of one of the most prominent figures, and founding fathers in U.S. history, the first American president, George Washington. Left of his image we see the inscription that instills the foundation of the United States, Liberty. On the right, we can also find the official U.S. motto “In God We Trust." The obverse side of the coin was designed by John Flanagan in 1932 on the 200th anniversary of the first U.S. president’s birth. The portrait is a redesign of an effigy from 1786, originally designed by Houdon.

The reverse image of the Silver 5-oz ATB 2018 Block Island National Wildlife Refuge Silver Coin features a migratory bird in flight, along with the famous Southeast Light lighthouse in the back which was built in 1875. Alongside it, you can also find the year the coin was first released and the state of Rhode Island’s name.

About Block Island National Wildlife Refuge

The Block Island is an island in the state of Rhode Island, located in Block Island Sound 9 miles south of the mainland, and 14 miles southeast of Long Island, New York. The Nature Conservancy added it to its list of “The Last Great Places” which includes 12 sites in the western hemisphere. Around 40% of the island is marked for conservation. 

The Block Island National Wildlife Refuge is stationed there and it provides an important habitat for wildlife and a place for people to appreciate the island’s national environment. It was established in 1973 starting from 28 acres transferred from the U.S. Coast Guard, but today its current size stands at 134 acres.
