General Coin Information

The last of five 2012-dated releases of the US Mint's America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program will be the 2012 Denali Silver Bullion Coin. Shown on the reverse of the strike will be a design emblematic of Denali National Park and Preserve located in the state of Alaska.

Aside from being the fifth to appear for the year in the series, the Denali Silver Bullion Coin will also mark the fifteenth to be issued in the series overall which debuted with five strikes released in 2010. Five new strikes are scheduled to appear as part of the series annually until fifty-six new coins have been struck in the program. These bullion coins share the same basic obverse and reverse imagery as the Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters® Program which also features a similar release schedule.

Denali National Park and Preserve was established as Mount McKinley National Park on February 26, 1917. In 1980, the park took on its present name of Denali National Park and Preserve to better reflect the wishes of the local citizens.

Obverse Design

Each America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin and the related quarter dollars all feature the same obverse portrait of George Washington. The image of the first President of the United States was created by John Flanagan for use on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar and has been in use (with minor variations) on the quarters ever since. Obverse inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.

Reverse Design

The reverse of the coin contains the design emblematic of Denali National Park and Preserve by showing an image of a Dall sheep in the foreground with Mount McKinley rising up behind him. This reverse was completed by AIP Master Designer Susan Gamble and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Jim Licaretz. Reverse inscriptions include DENALI, ALASKA, 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.
