El Yunque America the Beautiful 5 Oz Silver Coins (associated quarter image shown)

The 2012 El Yunque America the Beautiful 5 oz Silver Coins will be the first of five 2012-dated strikes to be released in two associated series. These two series are the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins™ and the America the Beautiful Five Ounce Uncirculated Coins™.

Each coin in both series is struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver to the extremely large diameter of three inches. Shown on the reverse of the El Yunque 5 oz Silver Coins is a design emblematic of El Yunque National Forest located in the United States territory of Puerto Rico.

In fact, that design was originally created for yet a third US Mint series, the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. The El Yunque Quarter from that series also provides the obverse design for the five ounce coins which is a portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States.

The description for the reverse design of the El Yunque coins provided by the US Mint states:

"The reverse of the first quarter of 2012 depicts a Coqui tree frog sitting on a leaf and a Puerto Rican parrot behind an epiphyte plant with tropical flora in the background.  Inscriptions are EL YUNQUE, PUERTO RICO, 2012 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.  The reverse was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Master Designer Gary Whitley and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Michael Gaudioso."

The 2012 El Yunque Silver Bullion Coin struck as part of the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins™ series was designed for investors and is initially sold through the Mint's network of authorized purchasers which resells the coins for a small premium above the current spot price of the silver contained within them.

The 2012 El Yunque Silver Uncirculated Coin is released by the US Mint as part of its America the Beautiful Five Ounce Uncirculated Coin™ series. These strikes are minted for collectors and are initially sold directly to the public by the Mint for a much larger premium over and above any melt value associated with it.

As previously stated, a total of five 2012-dated 5 oz silver coins will be released by the US Mint as part of each America the Beautiful series. These five include this El Yunque 5 oz Silver Coin as well as:

The five America the Beautiful Coin designs are also struck in the associated quarter dollar versions which are released for circulation as well as included in several US Mint product offerings.
