General Coin Information

The 2011 Olympic Silver Bullion Coin appeared from the US Mint as the third 2011 strike released under the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program. The coin honors Olympic National Park of Washington with a design on its reverse and was released through the Mint's network of authorized purchasers on May 23, 2011

Each Olympic Silver Coin is similar to the corresponding America the Beautiful Quarters® coin for its design, but these silver issues are struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver making them much larger than the quarter. The silver coin program debuted in 2010 and is scheduled to run until 2021 at a rate of five coins per year. Uncirculated silver coins are also issued by the Mint carrying these same designs.

Olympic National Park is found on the Olympic peninsula on the coast of Washington. Its unique location on that peninsula, with the Olympic Mountains separating it from the mainland, resulted in many of the plant and animal life found within the park to be endemic to the region.

Obverse Design

A portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States is found on the obverse of all of the America the Beautiful coins. The image was originally designed by John Flanagan and first used on the circulating quarter dollar in 1932. Surrounding the portrait should be the inscriptions of "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," " LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "QUARTER DOLLAR."

Reverse Design

Designed by AIP Master Designer Susan Gamble and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Michael Gaudioso, the reverse of the Olympic Coin shows an iconic Roosevelt Elk standing on a gravel bar of the Hoh River with Mount Olympus off in the distance. Surrounding the image should be the inscriptions of "OLYMPIC," "WASHINGTON," "2011" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

Edge Inscription

"999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE" is included as an edge inscription on each piece
