Each of the 2014 5 oz ATB Shenandoah Silver coins in this JM Bullion product listing has a grade of MS69 from the NGC. Considered a near-perfect specimen, these coins have full, original luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These detractions are minuscule in nature and limited to the outer edges of the coin.
In addition to their near-perfect grade, these coins have a proof-like finish. This can vary from one coin to the next in definition, but generally means that matte, frosted design sets or deeply-mirrored backgrounds are potentially visible. Though these coins have a proof-like finish, they are still bullion products.
On the reverse face of the coin you’ll find the image of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, as seen by a hiker standing at the edge of a cliff. Engravings include the state represented, the park depicted, and the year of issue.
The obverse bears the left-profile portrait of President George Washington. The first elected president and Commander-in-Chief of the United States was originally captured in a bust by William Cousins in 1786, and his image has appeared on American quarters since 1932.
America the Beautiful coins are released in groups of five each year, featuring new designs on each coin. The program will represent all 50 states, five territories, and the federal district when it is completed.
