Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park Silver Bullion Coin

in 2020 National Park Coins

The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park Silver Bullion Coin will be issued by the US Mint as the fourth 2020 strike of the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program. The reverse of the silver bullion coin will contain a design emblematic of Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park found in the state of Vermont. As of this posting, a release date for the coin was not known.

This coin also marks the fifty-fourth in the fifty-six coin series that features reverse designs emblematic of selected sites of national interest from around the United States and its territories. Each coin of the series is struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver to a diameter of three inches.

The America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin program was designed as a low-cost option for investors to add small amounts of precious metals to their portfolios. Accordingly, when first issued, these coins will be sold through the Mint’s network of authorized purchasers. The network obtains the coins in bulk from the Mint then resells them in smaller quantities to individuals and coin and precious metal dealers for a small premium above the current spot price of the silver they contain.

Shown on the obverse of the coin will be the same portrait of George Washington that is seen on the obverse of all of the America the Beautiful related coins. This portrait of the first President of the United States was originally designed by John Flanagan and has been seen on quarters in one form or another for decades. Surrounding the portrait will be the inscriptions of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.

The reverse will contain the design showcasing a portion of the national historical park. This design should also include the inscriptions of MARSH-BILLINGS-ROCKEFELLER, VERMONT, 2020 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park of Vermont

The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park was established by the United States Congress on August 26, 1992 in the state of Vermont. It is located on the site where Frederick Billings created a progressive dairy farm and a managed forest.

The park is named after the three previous owners of the locations – George Perkins Marsh, Frederick Billings and Laurence and Mary French Rockefeller. It is the Rockefellers who deeded the land over to the federal government for the creation of the park.
