The Block Island National Wildlife Refuge 2018 Uncirculated Five Ounce Silver Coin is composed of 99.9 percent silver.

The 2018 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ – Block Island National Wildlife Refuge (Rhode Island) is the fifth and final release of 2018 in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. This design depicts a black-crowned night- heron flying over a view from the beach at Cow Cove looking toward Sandy Point. The North Lighthouse is seen in the background.

Inscriptions are "BLOCK ISLAND," "RHODE ISLAND," "2018," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

Block Island National Wildlife Refuge is located 12 miles off the southern coast of mainland Rhode Island and sits on a terminal moraine, shaped by glacial till deposits, creating rolling dunes. Covering 133 acres, the refuge is distinctive because the staff works closely with other conservation organizations in an effort to protect the land. One partner, the Town of New Shoreham, operates the adjoining North Lighthouse, the island’s first lighthouse built in 1867. It has an interpretive display highlighting the importance of barrier beach habitat and the protection of the piping plover and other migratory shorebirds.

Block Island National Wildlife Refuge is a critical migratory bird stopover point on the Atlantic coast. Fruit-bearing shrubs provide essential food for the species of birds that come to rest there. These wild lands are also known internationally for spectacular bird watching and provide a breath-taking walk along the barrier beaches.
