A memorable way to protect your savings and celebrate the only tropical rainforest administered by the U.S. Forest Service!
The El Yunque National Forest area was originally set aside by King Alfonso XII of Spain in 1876. The forest is over 28,000 acres of land, and some areas receive over 200 inches of rainfall per year which helps create the jungle-like forest.
The obverse of the coin features the John Flanagan effigy of George Washington, as it has appeared on US quarters since 1932.
The reverse features a beautiful view of a tree branch with a tree frog and a parrot upon it. They are surrounded by a variety of tropical foliage. In an interesting touch, the weight and fineness of the coin have been engraved on the outer rim.
This coin has been graded by PCGS as Mint State 69, proof like. The coin is encapsulated in a PCGS slab with serial number.
The America the Beautiful series will eventually comprise 56 unique coins by the time the series is complete in 2021. These US Mint coins are a perfect way build your wealth in ounces, while buying a government minted product with a relatively low premium.
