For the America the Beautiful Series of silver coins, the United States Mint, Treasury Department, and the Secretary of the Treasury collaborated with citizen advisory committees to make selections for representative national monuments, parks, and forests from each of the 50 states, five overseas territories, and the District of Columbia.
The Effigy Mounds National Monument is a federally protected area in the state of Iowa, in Allamakee and Clayton Counties, that preserves more than 200 prehistoric mounds built by various Native American tribes. The mounds have various shapes, with the most common including bears and birds, and were built during the first millennium.
Each 2017 5 oz ATB Effigy Mounds National Monument Silver Coin in this listing is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, and contact marks from the production process.
The obverse of all ATB Effigy Mounds National Monument Silver coins includes the common obverse design theme, that of President George Washington. This left-profile portrait has appeared on the circulation 25-cent piece since 1932 and was created by John Flanagan.
On the reverse of the 2017 5 oz ATB Effigy Mounds National Monument Silver Coin is the image of some of the mounds created by the people of the Woodland Cultures. Included are engravings of the state of issue, representative park, and the year of issue.
All ATB Series silver coins are produced by the United States Mint at its Denver Mint and Philadelphia Mint facilities.
