American national parks and sites have another series of coins in their honor in addition to the quarters. Dubbed the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin™ Program by the United States Mint, these 5 oz, .999 fine silver coins are actually a sister series of the more publicized circulating America the Beautiful Quarters™.
The inaugural five releases featured four National Park 5 oz. Silver Bullion Coins and one National Forest 5 oz. Silver Bullion Coin. They included:
- 2010 Hot Springs National Park Silver Bullion Coin (Arkansas)
- 2010 Yellowstone National Park Silver Bullion Coin (Wyoming)
- 2010 Yosemite National Park Silver Bullion Coin (California)
- 2010 Grand Canyon National Park Silver Bullion Coin (Arizona)
