2020 America the Beautiful 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coins

The 2020 America the Beautiful 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coins will mark the last full year of the original US Mint’s America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program. Strikes in this series will each be composed of five ounces of .999 fine silver with a diameter of three inches and feature reverse designs emblematic of sites of national interest from the United States and its territories.

This silver bullion series debuted in 2010 and had a schedule of five strikes released per year as part of it. Each strike represented a different site from a different state or US territory so that a total of fifty-six were scheduled to be issued in the program before the last one appeared in 2021.

That release rate was dictated by Public Law 110-456 (America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008) which authorized the coins along with a series of circulating quarter dollars. However, that same Act also allowed for a second run through of the program if the Treasury Secretary decided to exercise that option in the time allotted.

This series of bullion strikes are intended for investors as a means for them to add small amounts of the precious metal to their portfolios. The United States Mint also strikes a collector-grade version of these coins known as the 2020 5 Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coins.

Information on each of the 2020 America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins is offered below with additional information available by following the provided links:

2020 National Park 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coins

The 2020 National Park Silver Coins will be the fifty-first release of the US Mint’s America the Beautiful 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coin Program. They will also mark the first strike to appear in the series in 2020 and will honor the National Park of American Samoa on their reverse with a design emblematic of the location.

Established on October 31, 1988 by Congress, it was another five years before the National Park Service could attain the required land for the park. That is because all of the land on American Samoa is communally owned leading the park service to reach a 50-year lease agreement for the land instead of owning it like a typical national park.

2020 Weir Farm 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coins

The second strike to be released in 2020 as part of the series will be the Weir Farm Silver Coins. These strikes will honor Weir Farm National Historic Site found in the state of Connecticut.

Weir Farm was established in 1990 to commemorate the work of American Impressionist painter J. Alden Weir. The National Park Service offers tours of his studio and visitors can also take a short walk on the nearby hiking trail.

2020 Salt River Bay 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coins

The Salt River Bay Silver Coins will be the third strikes to appear in the bullion series that year. Shown on the reverse of these strikes will be a design emblematic of Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve found in the US Virgin Islands.

Established on February 24, 1992, Salt River Bay has the distinction of being the only location where members of the Columbus Expedition actually set foot on soil now under the control of the United States. Aside from its historical significance, the area also preserves a fragile ecosystem found there.

2020 Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coins

The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller Silver Coins will be the fourth coin to appear in the silver bullion series from the US Mint that year. These strikes will honor the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park of Vermont with a design located on their reverse.

This national historical park takes its name from its three previous owners – George Marsh, Frederick Billings and Laurence and Mary Rockefeller. It preserves the site where Billings originally established a progressive dairy farm and and managed forest program.

2020 Tallgrass Prairie 5 Ounce Silver Bullion Coins

Released as the final of five strikes in the year for the series will be the Tallgrass Prairie Silver Coins. These strikes will honor the Tallgrass Prairie National found in the state of Kansas.

This national preserve protects a small area of tallgrasses which once covered literally millions of acres in North America. Today, only a small portion of those tallgrass acres remains with many of them located in the same area as this preserve.

A separate site dedicated to these strikes can be found by clicking on 5 oz bullion coins.

These America the Beautiful 5 oz Silver Bullion Coins will not be sold directly to the public by the US Mint. Instead, the Mint uses a network of authorized purchasers for all of its bullion strikes which obtains the coins in bulk, then resells them in smaller lots to local coin and precious metal dealers for a small premium above the current spot price of the silver contained within them.
