The coin featuring an image of El Yunque National Forest is the first coin released in the 2012 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin Series. These coins are legal tender and have a nominal face value of 25 cents. Their fineness and weight are edge-incused.
The series features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model, on the obverse. The reverse depicts a Coqui tree frog on a leaf and a Puerto Rican parrot behind an epiphyte plant with tropical flora in the background.
These striking numismatic collectibles are produced with an uncirculated finish and display a "P" mint mark for the United States Mint at Philadelphia, where they are struck. The coins are encapsulated, set in a protective outer box, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
