In total, all states in the US plus the five territories and District of Columbia are represented.
Each of the 2018 5 oz ATB Block Island National Wildlife Refuge Silver Coins in this offering are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, however you may notice breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks as a result of striking the blanks during the production process.
On the reverse of each 2018 5 oz ATB Block Island National Wildlife Refuge Silver Coins you’ll find images of the migratory birds that use Block Island for a stop along the Atlantic Flyway.
The obverse of all ATB Silver Coins include the left-profile portrait of President George Washington. The nation’s first president, Washington was born in 1732 and 200 years later, his image made its way onto the circulation quarter as part of the bicentennial celebration of his birth in 1932.
Block Island is located 14 miles southeast of Long Island, New York, and is considered a part of the state of Rhode Island. The island has just over 1,000 year-round residents, and its northwestern tip remains undeveloped as a natural area and resting stop for migratory birds moving north and south along the Atlantic Flyway of the United States.
