About the 2016 Shawnee National Forest 5 Oz American Silver ATB

In terms of its 5,000 year timespan as a trusted store of value and its overall historical transaction volumes, silver is indeed mankind’s all time money. Famed U.S. economist Milton Friedman once stated, “The major monetary metal in history is silver, not gold.”

Silver is indeed scarce compared to many other of Earth’s elements and resources. In terms of its availability in the ground silver is the most plentiful precious monetary metal known to man (gold being the other which occurs less often). Silver is also the lowest priced of all the precious metals (gold, platinum, palladium, ruthenium, rhodium, osmium, iridium, and silver) making it an excellent potential value for bullion buyers seeking to own it over other competing fiat currencies.

As part of the official 2016 America the Beautiful silver coins, the US Mint has created this 5 ounce silver coin featuring the Shawnee National Forest found in the state of Illinois.

Bullion Coin bullet points:

  • U.S. Mint produced collectible coin.
  • Contains 5 troy ounce minimum weighting.
  • Comprised of .999 fine silver bullion.
  • Has a legal tender face value of 25¢ though it is traded based on its bullion and collectible value.
  • Unique design showcases the Shawnee National Forest.

  

The obverse side of this coin features the Shawnee National Forest. The forest, at the southern tip of illinois, was established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939. The reverse side of the coin features the famous Camel Rock. The name is given because it looks similar to a sitting camel. The head and hump being distinctly recognizable with a hawk flying overhead and natural plants all around.

The obverse features the standard design that comes on a United States quarter design. George Washington’s portrait is featured in the center with the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “LIBERTY”, “IN GOD WE TRUST”, & “QUARTER DOLLAR” located around him. The most significant phrase for investors is the “quarter dollar” which covers legal tender status. 

While the legal tender value is largely symbolic (as the market price for 5 ounces of silver is far higher than 25¢) its legal tender value does have great significance. As legal tender (or official US government currency) this coin is protected by would be counterfeits. The US Secret Service (the same department that protects the US Presidents & other officials) safeguards the integrity of these coins. In addition to this government protection also comes a guarantee by the United States for its weight and silver precious metal purity.
