The Uncirculated America the Beautiful 5-ounce silver coins are collector versions of the coins of the same size issued through the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin Program. The designs on the 5-ounce silver coins are identical to the designs on the corresponding circulating quarter dollars issued through the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
Both the Uncirculated and bullion versions of the 5-ounce coins are composed of .999 fine silver.
The bullion coins, however, do not have a Mint mark. The Uncirculated 5-ounce silver coins display the "P" Mint mark indicating production at the Philadelphia Mint.
Each of the Uncirculated coins offered is enclosed in a protective plastic capsule and placed in a presentation case. A certificate of authenticity is included.
