The Silver 5-oz ATB 2018 Voyageurs National Park celebrates the state of Minnesota and its only national park. It was the 3rd coin released in the 2018 collection and the 43rd coin in the overall series issued annually since 2010. The coin was intended to be used as bullion, and as such has a government-backed value of 25 cents (USD). The coin has the same purity and mass as the other coins in the collection. It’s granted a face value of $0.25 (USD) backed by the U.S. Federal government. It’s a plain type edge with incuse inscriptions.
President George Washington’s left profile portrait is prominently featured on the obverse side of the coin. The design was introduced in 1932 by Congress as a replacement to the previous quarter coin and designed by John Flanagan. The inscription of the U.S. motto “In God We Trust” is featured on the right side of the portrait, along with the founding idea “Liberty” on the left.
The reverse side of the Silver 5-oz ATB 2018 Voyageurs National Park Silver Coin is the image of one of the many beautiful waterfalls found in Voyageurs National park. It also includes the inscription of the original U.S. Motto “E. pluribus unum," based on the Great Seal of the United States first used in 1782.
The coin is a great way of celebrating the Voyageurs National Park, and honoring the early European settlers.
About Voyageurs National Park
Voyageurs National Park is an American national park located near the town of International Falls in northern Minnesota, established in 1975. The name commemorates the voyageurs. They were French-Canadian fur traders known as the first European settlers who traveled the area.
Spanning over an area of 218,200 acres, Voyageurs National Park is notable for its vast amount of open water which make it popular with kayakers, boaters, and fishermen. It’s also one of the national rare parks whose primary access point is via water. It’s home to timber wolves, black bear, moose, and an abundance of white-tailed deer. Bald eagle, loon, double-crested cormorant, owl, and warblers are common birds found there.
