General Coin Information

The 2012 Acadia Silver Bullion Coin will be the third of five releases in 2012 of the US Mint's America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program. Showcased on the reverse of the silver bullion coin will be a design emblematic of Acadia National Park which is located in the state of Maine.

The US Mint strikes each coin in the series from five ounces of .999 fine silver with a diameter of three inches. As bullion strikes of the Mint, they are initially sold through the Mint's network of authorized purchasers. The purchasers obtain the coins in bulk from the US Mint and then resells them to the public for a small premium above the current spot price of the five ounces of silver they contain. This procedure is typical of all bullion products from the Mint such as the American Silver Eagles.

Acadia National Park was created as Lafayette National Park on July 8, 1916. Much of the infrastructure of the park was originally financed by philanthropist John D. Rockefeller, Jr. whose influence can still be seen inside the park today ranging from the carriage trails to the granite bridges and two gate lodges.

Obverse Design

Shown on the obverse of each America the Beautiful Coin is a portrait of the first President of the United States, George Washington. The image of Washington was originally designed by John Flanagan for use on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar and it has appeared on the obverse of the quarter in one form or another ever since. Obverse inscriptions will include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.

Reverse Design

A design emblematic of Acadia National Park is featured on the reverse of the silver bullion coin. The design depicts Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse found along the rough and rocky coastline of the park. This reverse was designed by AIP Associate Designer Barbara Fox and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna. Reverse inscriptions will include ACADIA, MAINE, 2012 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.

Edge Inscription

"999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE" can be found inscribed on the edge of each silver bullion coin indicating its weight and fineness.
