Located along the coast of Delaware, the Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge covers 15,978 acres of land in Kent County. The refuge was established as a breeding ground for migratory and wintering waterfowl that use the Atlantic Flyway to migrate along the eastern seaboard. The refuge was founded on March 16, 1937 and is managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series that honors national parks, national forests, and historic landmarks from across the country. Unveiled for the first time in 2010, the ATB Silver Coins feature five new designs each year and production is scheduled to extend through 2021. The series represents all 50 US states, the five overseas territories, and the District of Columbia.
On the reverse side of the coin you’ll find the image of a great blue heron standing amongst the reeds of the marshland in the foreground, while a great egret dips its bill in the water in the background.
The obverse side of the coin bears the refined version of John Flanagan’s left-profile bust of President George Washington. Featured on all circulation American quarters, the image is based upon a 1786 sculpture of President Washington by William Cousins.
The United States Mint has increased production of America the Beautiful coins significantly in recent years. Mintage for these coins is expected to match that of other ATB coins.
