The Silver 5-oz ATB 2019 American Memorial Park Coin is the 2nd coin released in the 2019 collection, and the 47th coin overall. It is composed of 5 troy ounces of 0.999 silver, and it’s also valued at 0.25 U.S. dollars like the rest of the America the Beautiful series.
The obverse of the silver coin features the left-profile portrait of one of the founding fathers, and the first elected president of the United States, George Washington. The founding idea of the country, Liberty, is inscribed on the coin along with the official U.S. motto “In God We Trust." The obverse was designed by John Flanagan in 1932 and approved by Congress. It’s been a definitive part of the U.S. quarter since then.
The reverse side of the 5-oz 2019 ATB American Memorial Park Silver Coin features an image of a little girl viewing the Flag Circle and the Court of Honor monument. It’s designed to commemorate the 4000 fallen lives who died defending the island in June 1944.
