http://www.APMEX.com - The front of the America the Beautiful 5 oz. Silver Bullion coins are an exact replica of the U.S. Mint's quarter dollar, featuring one of the nation's first veterans, George Washington. The designs on the back memorialize the National Parks Program, itself instated by a revered veteran, Theodore Roosevelt. The back of the Gettysburg National Military Park coin depicts Soldiers National Monument, which stands in the center of the Soldiers National Cemetery and was constructed to honor those who fell at the Battle of Gettysburg in July of 1863. The statue now stands guard over the 6,000 American soldiers laid to rest at Gettysburg. The Glacier National Park coin depicts the majestic glacier-carved Mount Reynolds. The mountain goat in the foreground reminds us of the diverse wildlife fostered within the park. Glacier National Park obtained federal protected status on February 22, 1897 and consists of 1,000,000 acres.
