Honoring Oliver Hazard Perry and the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812, the U.S. Mint’s 17th release in the America the Beautiful (ATB) silver bullion coin series is Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial 5 oz Silver coin. Like all in the ATB series, each coin is composed of 5 troy ounces of .999 fine silver and can be secured at Provident Metals.
The reverse of each brilliant uncirculated coin portrays the statue of Perry, U.S. Navy Commodore, appearing before the Peace Memorial in Ohio. Inscriptions surrounding the image include “PERRY’S VICTORY,” “OHIO,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “2013.”
Perry earned the name “Hero of Lake Erie” after serving in the War of 1812 and guiding American troops to a pivotal victory in the Battle of Lake Erie. Ultimately, he garnered a Congressional Gold Medal by playing a decisive role in nine battles throughout the war.
Standing 352 feet above Lake Erie, the Doric column Memorial is among the tallest in the United States. It was established on March 3, 1919 as a national site to celebrate peace among the U.S., Canada and Britain and pay homage to those who fought in the War of 1812 at the Battle of Lake Erie. It also bears Perry’s name.
The obverse features John Flanagan’s familiar and restored portrait of George Washington. The inscriptions read “QUARTER DOLLAR,” “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “LIBERTY” and the mint mark “P,” showing it was minted at the U.S. Mint’s Philadelphia facility.
The five ounce Perry’s Victory & Peace Park 5 oz Silver coin is the second of five to be released in 2013. Each design in the program features national parks and sites across the United States.
Upcoming 2013 ATB quarters:
