America the Beautiful 5-oz Silver Coin Remembers Battle at Vicksburg
.999 pure silver coin from the U.S. Mint provides both a great investment and collectors’ item for history buffs
Remembering yet another significant site in U.S. history, the next America the Beautiful series 5-oz silver coin commemorates the 47-day campaign, siege and defense of this strategic location along the Mississippi River. This stunning silver quarter is the 4 th in the America the Beautiful series to be released in 2011 and the 11 th overall.
For the reverse side of the coin, collectors will find a depiction of the U.S.S. Cairo, an ironclad gunboat, sailing up the Yazoo River during the battle. Being one of the first boats of its kind, the Cairo also became famous for being the first to be sunk by an electronically detonated torpedo.
After sitting at the bottom of the Yazoo River for nearly 100 years, the gunship was dug up and is now on display at the Vicksburg National Military Park in Mississippi.
