The America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ – War in the Pacific National Historical Park (Guam) is the third release of 2019 in the America the Beautiful Quarters Program. The reverse (tails) design portrays American forces coming ashore at Asan Bay, strengthening the number of troops on the island in the fight for Guam and its eventual liberation. Inscriptions are “WAR IN THE PACIFIC,” “GUAM,” 2019,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
The westernmost park of all the National Park Service units, War in the Pacific National Historical Park was established in 1978 to commemorate the bravery, courage, and sacrifice of those participating in the campaigns of the Pacific Theater of World War II. At War in the Pacific National Historical Park, the former battlefields, gun emplacements, trenches, and historic structures all serve as reminders of key World War II battles. The park also conserves and interprets a variety of amazing resources found on Guam. Snorkeling, fishing, and exploring the coral reefs are among some of the favorite recreational activities enjoyed by visitors to the site.
Perhaps the most iconic memorial in the park is the Asan Bay Overlook. In addition to sweeping views of the landing beaches, Apra Harbor, and seaside villages, there are bronze sculptures depicting events that took place on Guam. The Memorial Wall of Names lists both the military personnel killed, as well as the local residents who either lost their lives or suffered during the Japanese occupation. Other memorials include the Marine Landing Memorial, the Liberator's Memorial, and the Ga'an Point flag display.
