The region has hosted human life dating back 11,000 years to a time when the first Native American tribes settled in the area.

Encompassing portions of Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana, Yellowstone National Park was established as a protected region by an Act of Congress which was signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant in March, 1872. The area is widely regarded as the first national park in the world, and the greater ecosystem contained within the park is believed to be the largest remaining one nearly intact in the northern temperate zone of Earth.
As part of the America the Beautiful coin series, the 2010 Yellowstone Silver Coin was the second coin released in the planned 56-coin series. The America the Beautiful coins will be introduced in groups of five through 2021, eventually representing each of the 50 US states, Washington D.C., and the five US territories.
Each coin available in this product listing is in near-perfect condition. The coins still have their full, original luster, but may contain upwards of two minor flaw, detracting marks, or blemishes. Though not a proof coin, the finish on these coins is classified as DM, meaning it appears deeply mirrored.
The United States Mint produces all of its ATB coins at the Philadelphia Mint and San Francisco Mint, using special coining presses constructed in Germany. Coins from the Philadelphia Mint bear no mint mark, while San Francisco coins feature an “S” mint mark.
