The National Park of American Samoa 2020 has an uncirculated five-ounce silver coin. The coin will be debuting on February 3, 2020, and will be available for sale from the 6th of February for $178.25. The coin is a part of the celebration of the U.S. Mint’s “America the Beautiful Quarters Program.” Represented on the coin is a mother fruit bat and her baby, which is hanging upside down.
This is the 57th quarter dollar coin by the U.S. mint, which depicts designs that represent parks and other various national sites. All of this has been a part of America the Beautiful Quarters program.
Motive of the coin
The purpose of this image is to evoke and appreciate the immeasurable and remarkable amount of care that the species shows for its offspring. The species fruit bat is the most endangered species of bat in the world. The number in 1993 was found to be approximately 137-160 worldwide. The species is the largest one in the world when talked about Cave dwelling bats. They only habituate themselves at an altitude of around 1800-2400 above the mean sea level. The issue of the design has a special purpose of spreading awareness regarding this critical problem. The species has been threatened due to habitat loss and commercial hunting. The only park which is home to the Samoan fruit bat is The National park of American Samoa.
Further release dates
A plan for four more coins to represent other national parks has been laid out. One of them will debut in April, which will display the Weir farm National Historic site in Connecticut. The one coming out in June will represent Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological preserve situated in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The August debuting coin will honor the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park in Vermont. The final debut of November will present the Tallgrass Prairie National preserve in Kansas.
