General Coin Information

The 2010 Grand Canyon Silver Bullion Coin is the fourth issue of the US Mint's America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program. This coin features a reverse design emblematic of Grand Canyon National Park, located in the state of Arizona and was initially issued to the Mint's network of authorized purchasers on December 10, 2010.

Grand Canyon National Park was established on February 26, 1919 and is one of the most visited units in the national park system with over 4 million annual visitors. Most of those visitors spend their time on the South Rim which offers breathtaking views of the canyon and Colorado River winding below. The canyon itself stretches for 277 miles, at times reaching widths of 18 miles and depths over a mile.

Some visitors opt to enjoy the canyon from other perspectives. This includes viewing it from the much less used North Rim, taking helicopter or plane rides over the canyon, rafting down the Colorado River, and hiking and/or riding mules down the trail to the bottom.

Designs on this series of silver bullion coins are similar to those found on the US Mint's circulating America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. However, each of these coins are struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver making them the largest bullion coins from the US Mint and sizably larger than the series of park quarters.

Obverse Design

The inscriptions of "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," " LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "QUARTER DOLLAR" surround a portrait of George Washington that is found on the obverse of each America the Beautiful coin. The portrait was originally designed by John Flanagan and first featured on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar.

Reverse Design

Inscriptions of "GRAND CANYON," "ARIZONA," "2010" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" are included on the reverse of the coin along with a view of the granaries above the Nankoweap Delta in Marble Canyon near the Colorado River. It was designed and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill.

Edge Inscription

An edge inscription on the Grand Canyon Silver Coin shows its weight and fineness with ".999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE."
