General Coin Information

The 2010 Yosemite Silver Bullion Coin marks the third release the US Mint's America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program and was issued to the Mint's network of authorized purchasers on December 10, 2010. The coin features a reverse design emblematic of Yosemite National Park, located in the state of California.

Yosemite National Park was established on October 1, 1890 and today consists of 761,268 acres. However, most visitors spend their time in the much smaller Yosemite Valley, home to many of the park's famous icons.

The valley was carved out of the landscape by the Merced River and is eight miles long and up to a mile deep in places. Surrounding the valley are high granite summits, the most famous of which are called El Capitan, Half Dome and Cloud's Rest. In the valley, visitors find a dense forest of pine.

The US Mint's America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin Program features imagery similar to that found on the circulating America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, also from the Mint. Likes those quarters, the obverse of each strike contains an image of George Washington, the first President of the United States. The reverse contains a design emblematic of the honored site.

Obverse Design

A portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States, is found on the obverse of the coin. It was originally designed by John Flanagan for the circulating 1932 quarter dollar and has been featured on the quarter in one form or another ever since. Included as well are the inscriptions of "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," " LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "QUARTER DOLLAR."

Reverse Design

The reverse of the strike contains a design emblematic of Yosemite National Park and shows a view of El Capitan, one of the granite monoliths surrounding Yosemite Valley. It was designed by Joseph Menna and sculpted by Phebe Hemphill and also shows the inscriptions of "YOSEMITE," "CALIFORNIA," "2010" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

Edge Inscription

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