Pretty silver!

I won't lie - I have a thing for the "America the Beautiful" silver coins. They're 5oz coins with a face value of a quarter (thanks to a bit of Congressional doofidity), and feature various scenes from around the country. I'm keeping an eye out for a few that I don't have yet (Acadia Nat'l Park in particular), but not eager to pay the premium many of them are pulling.

The mint just announced the designs and release dates for 2014.

Great Smoky Mountains Nat'l Park (April 7)
Shenandoah Nat'l Park (May 15)
Arches Nat'l Park (June 12)
Great Sand Dunes Nat'l Park (August)
Everglades Nat'l Park (November)

Absolutely beautiful.

If you're planning to collect them, the mint has a subscription plan available that'll save 10% from list price, and they'll just appear in your mailbox. Yes, I did. There's a limited mintage planned, the coins are gorgeous, and values only seem to be increasing. Highly recommended.
