General Coin Information

The 2011 Gettysburg Silver Bullion Coin honors Gettysburg National Military Park of Pennsylvania and is struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver.

This strike marks the first for the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program for 2011 and the sixth for the program overall since it debuted in 2010. The coins are struck with similar designs to those found on the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, but since these feature five ounces of silver, they are much larger than the circulating quarters.

All of the coins in both series honor sites of national interest from around the United States. This coin honors Gettysburg National Military Park of Pennsylvania which was established by the War Department on February 11, 1895 on order to commemorate the Battle of Gettysburg of the American Civil War, as well as those who fought and died at the battle.

The United States Mint started accepting orders for the Gettysburg Silver Bullion Coin on April 25, 2011 from its network of authorized purchasers.

Obverse Design

An image of George Washington is found on the obverse of the strike. The design was originally completed by John Flanagan for the 1932 circulating quarter dollar. Along with the portrait, the inscriptions of "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," " LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "QUARTER DOLLAR" should be found on the obverse.

Reverse Design

The reverse of the coin shows a depiction of the 72nd Pennsylvania Infantry Monument found within the park along with the inscriptions of "GETTYSBURG," "PENNSYLVANIA," "2011" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." It was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Master Designer Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill.

Edge Inscription

The edge inscription of this coin is "999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE."
