Lowell National Historical Park Silver Uncirculated Coin

in 2019 National Park Coins

The Lowell National Historical Park Silver Uncirculated Coin will be issued by the US Mint as the first of five 2019 releases of the America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ Program. Shown on the reverse of the silver uncirculated coin will be a design emblematic of Lowell National Historical Park found in the state of Massachusetts. As of this posting, a release date for the strike was not known.

Like other coins of this series, the Lowell Silver Uncirculated Coin will be struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver to a diameter of three inches. It will feature obverse and reverse imagery similar to that found on both a series of associated silver bullion coins and a series of circulating quarter dollars.

The bullion coins are known as the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins™ and the quarters are known as the America the Beautiful Quarters®. Along with this series of uncirculated coins, the three series all honor sites of national interest from around the United States and its territories. One site was chosen from each state, the District of Columbia and the five US territories for a total of fifty-six locations to be honored in the three programs.

Like other numismatic products from the US Mint, these coins will be initially sold directly to the public by the Mint. This differs from the associated bullion coins which will initially be sold through the Mint’s network of authorized purchasers and the circulating quarters which will typically be found being used for everyday commerce transactions.

The obverse of each will contain a portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan and the inscriptions of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR. The reverse will contain the design emblematic of the historical park as well as the inscriptions of LOWELL, MASSACHUSETTS, 2019 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.

Lowell National Historical Park in Massachusetts

Lowell National Historical Park was established on June 5, 1978 in the state Massachusetts. It was created to recall the creation and past of the city which was almost completely centered around textile manufacturing during the industrial revolution.

It also reminds all of the end of the textile manufacturing boom in the United States and the effects that it had on the people of the region. Several sites have been restored to their former glory allowing visitors to understand a bit more of the history of Lowell.
