Mount Hood National Forest Five Ounce Silver Coins
Mount Hood National Forest is represented on this America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin. The coins contain 5 troy ounces of .999 fine silver, with an unusually wide diameter of 3 inches. Mount Hood appears in the background with an image of Lost Lake in the foreground.
The United States Mint encountered production challenges, which would result in a limited mintage of only 33,000 bullion coins and an additional 27,000 numismatic versions of the coin. The limited quantities have prompted enthusiasm from collectors.
