Found on the reverse (tails side) is a design emblematic of American Memorial Park in the U.S. territory of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Each coin is composed of 5.000 troy ounces of 99.9% fine silver to a diameter of 3.000 inches.

The collectible appears as the 47th issue from the U.S. Mint’s America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ program. Coins in the series share the same designs featured on their associated America the Beautiful quarter dollars. Debuting in 2010, both programs showcase five designs annually with each honoring a different site of national interest.

Coin Designs and Specifications

American Memorial Park coins depict a young woman in traditional dress. She appears at the front of the Flag Circle and Court of Honor with her hand resting on the plaque whose text honors the sacrifice of those who died in the liberation of Saipan.
