The Frank Church Wilderness is the largest wilderness area in the 48 contiguous United States of America comprised of raging rivers, pine studded mountains and deep canyons. The preservation area is named after the late Senator Frank Church who advocated for the preservation of the wilderness area during his lifetime.
On the Front of the Coin
The ATB silver bullion coins look like giant quarters and even bear a face value of a “quarter dollar”, though the five ounces of silver contained in the coins makes them worth far more.

About The America The Beautiful Coin Series
The America The Beautiful five ounce silver coins were authorized in 2008 under Public Law 110-456. The ATB coins are five ounces of .999 fine silver and are exact replicas of the designs of the America the Beautiful quarters ($.25) minted for general circulation. The ATB five ounce silver coins even have stamped on them “quarter dollar” on the obverse. ATB five ounce coins are the first five ounce silver coins ever produced by the U.S. Mint.
Each year since 2010, the U.S. Mint has produced five different designs of America the Beautiful coins. The reverse of the ATB coins features various depictions of U.S. National Parks or other national sites. The obverse of the ATB coins looks like a U.S. quarter featuring a portrait of George Washington. Indeed, the ATB series includes U.S. quarters intended for general circulation with face values of twenty five cents that are produced in the same design as their five ounce silver commemorative counterparts.
The ATB quarter program is a 12-year initiative that will honor 56 national parks and other national sites by 2020.
Because of their limited mintages, the ATB silver coins often sell out quickly and in later years sell for higher premiums over the value of their silver bullion content.
