Dubbed “America’s Mountain,” Pikes Peak has figured prominently in the history of the United States. Serving as the inspiration for the timeless anthem “America the Beautiful,” it is truly a national treasure.
With its towering elevation of 14, 110 feet, the mountain also poses a serious challenge to climbers of all skill levels. Boasting the greatest vertical gain of all the Colorado mountains above 14,000 feet, Pikes Peak tests the endurance and skill of those brave enough to make the ascent up its steep slopes.
This coin is dedicated to the intrepid climbers who have persevered to master the mountain’s difficult terrain. Minted in MerlinGold,® a proprietary brass alloy that simulates the look and feel of gold, the obverse features a rendering of Pikes Peak and includes its elevation. The reverse depicts a mountain climber ascending up the mountain’s icy slopes. Each coin comes sealed in a protective Lucite capsule and packaged with a certificate of authenticity that describes Pikes Peak in full detail.
Each item measures 1 1/2 inch (39mm) in diameter.
