Montana State Label American Silver Eagle
State 2 of 50
Montana is the fourth largest state but is number 44 for population with just over 7 people per square mile, making it a sought after destination spot for all kinds of recreation. Its deer, elk, and antelope outnumber humans. The state’s terrain ranges from plains and rolling hills to the fierce Rocky Mountains and it includes two National Parks, Yellowstone and Glacier. The rich deposits of gold, silver, copper, lead, zinc, and coal give Montana its nickname as the “Treasure State”. The Grizzly Bear is the state animal and Montana is the home of the largest population of Grizzlies in the lower 48 states making it perfect as state 2 of 50 in the 7k U.S. State Series Collection.
Texas State Label American Silver Eagle
State 3 of 50
They say that everything is BIGGER in Texas. Truth is, Texas is actually the second largest state in the United States, by both area and population. The state’s economy is shaped by the cattle industry, which Texas has dominated since before the U.S. Civil War! In fact, it's estimated that the state’s cattle population reaches about 16 MILLION! Coming in second on the list for most Fortune 500 companies, if Texas were a sovereign state it would be the 10th largest economy in the world. Crazy, right?! So when you hear the term “everything is bigger in Texas”, it doesn't just apply to their cattle ranches, wide-open spaces, bugs, and the number of visitors, but their economy too.
