Chickasaw Five Ounce Silver Coin (US Mint image)Today, February 9, 2012, beginning at Noon (Eastern), the United States Mint has made available the 2011 Chickasaw Silver Uncirculated Coin. This strike marks the last 2011-dated issue of the US Mint's America the Beautiful Five Ounce Uncirculated Coin™ series.

Each Chickasaw Silver Uncirculated Coin is composed of five ounces of .999 fine silver and features a diameter of three inches. These uncirculated coins are struck as the numismatic versions of the Mint's Chickasaw Silver Bullion Coins which feature similar specifications and designs but are struck for investors.

These five ounce coins are the tenth in the series to be issued by the US Mint which debuted with five 2010-dated strikes. Both the uncirculated and the related bullion coins take their designs from the Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.

This includes an obverse portrait of George Washington and reverse designs emblematic of selected sites of national interest - in this case Chickasaw National Recreation Area of Oklahoma. The reverse depicts a view of Lincoln Bridge found within the recreation area.

The Chickasaw Silver Uncirculated Coins are available now from the US Mint. Orders may be placed by calling 1-800-USA-MINT or by using the Mint's online store found at http://catalog.usmint.gov.
