The Grand Canyon is one of the true natural wonders of the world, and it is celebrated in ultra high relief with this beautiful proof quality round.
The Grand Canyon was first protected by President Roosevelt in 1906, although it was not designated a national park until 1919. The canyon has been carved out of Northern Arizona by the Colorado river over millions of years, and is thought to expose almost 2 billion years of Earth's geological history. The canyon is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide at it's widest point and up to 6000 feet deep at it's deepest point. As one of the world's most popular tourist attractions, the canyon sees as many as five million visitors a year.
This is the second ultra high relief release by the Elemetal Mint in what will expand into an on going series of great attractions in America. If it is as popular as the first release, the ultra high relief Privateer, the Grand Canyon silver round will be a runaway success. This round will only be minted for a limited time - do not delay, secure yours today!
