The ‘America the Beautiful’ series is an extended project by the United States mint which attempts to capture the natural beauty of America’s national parks and nature reserves through bullion quarters.
Backed by the U.S. government and adorning the image of first American President George Washington on the obverse side, the reverse side of each ATB coin depicts an intricate image of one of America’s incredible publicly-owned nature preserves.
The 2020 5 Oz Silver America the Beautiful Tallgrass Prairie National Reserve Quarter is the penultimate coin in this series, which has been released consistently for over eleven years.
This coin commemorates the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, one of the most beautiful natural landmarks in the state of Kansas.

The America the Beautiful Series by the United States is quickly coming to an end. The fiftieth and final state (Alabama) is set to be released in 2021. This makes this coin the second-to-last product in this eleven-year product line! In the United States especially, collectable coins hold a special place in the hearts of many bullion collectors. Of course, the $.25 value designation is almost inconsequential compared to the value of the 5 ounces of .999 pure silver with which the piece is struck. Still, the collectability of the fifty coins in this uniquely American series cannot be denied.
The Tallgrass Prairie depicted on the reverse of this coin represents the pinnacle of what the series is all about. Featuring a butterfly floating above a section of tall grass, its nature-oriented imagery paints a beautiful picture of the majesty and natural appeal of the Tallgrass park, which is jointly run by the government and a private group. Naturally, this coin also boasts the bust of George Washington, the American leader whose face adorns all iterations of the country’s prized quarters.
Although there’s no limit to the amount of these coins that will be minted by the government, collectors can order these silver bullion items in bulk to help sure-up their collection and the value of their bullion stock. This is great, considering how many bullion collectors give collectable U.S. quarters as gifts to family and friends. As the series comes to an end, this penultimate design will likely only gain value in the future.
What better way could there be to celebrate the natural beauty and majesty of the United States than with a coin commemorating one of its most incredible natural scenes? The 5 Oz America The Beautiful Tallgrass Prairie National Reserve Quarter combines the familiarity of the American quarter with a quaint nature scene to help finish off a decade-old coin collection
