American quarters celebrated the major monuments, parks, and forests found in each US state on the American quarters program launched at the end of the 20th century. Now, the United States Mint has launched a new America the Beautiful quarter series that consists of larger 5 oz coins honoring the nation’s memorable monuments, national parks, and national forests. JM Bullion proudly offers 2011 ATB Silver Coins to our shoppers.
In 2010, the United States Mint unveiled the all-new America the Beautiful coin series. The 56-coin series consists of five new coin designs each year, honoring a different state or territory from across the country. In total, the Mint will release five coin designs each year through 2021, with that final year consisting of just one new design. All 50 states in the US will be represented, as well as the federal district of Washington DC, and the nation’s five overseas territories of Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the US Virgin Islands.
The ATB Silver coin series features new designs each year, with coins released based upon the date of the park, forest, or monument’s establishment as a federally protected entity. For example, Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas is the nation’s oldest established park, and was featured on the reverse of the first coin released in the ATB series.
At JM Bullion, we proudly offer investors and collectors each of the five coins released during the 2011 America the Beautiful coin program. In just the second year of the ATB series, the Mint released coins representing the following states and places:
All 2011 ATB Silver Coins feature a unique image from a national park, forest, or monument on the reverse. Each design honors a specific state. The obverse side of all coins features the left-profile portrait of President George Washington. The same image that appears on circulation quarters, Washington’s image is derived from an 1876 bust created by William Cousins.
While JM Bullion offers each of these coins in brilliant, uncirculated condition, we also proudly offer a variety of these 2011 ATB Silver coins with certified grades from either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation or the Professional Coin Grading Service. These two certification services are not the only ones to grade coins, but are the most prominent actors in the industry. Certification from these services adds inherent value to any coin.

Any 2011 ATB Silver Coin available for purchase through JM Bullion is sold and shipped in a plastic slab to protect the coin’s condition, ensuring you receive the coin in the condition it was viewed and graded by the NGC or PCGS.
