Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine

The Fort McHenry National Monument quarter is the fourth released in 2013 and the 19th overall in the America the Beautiful Quarters? Program. Fort McHenry ? the birthplace of our country?s national anthem ? was named for James McHenry, our Nation?s second secretary of war. Following the burning of the Nation?s capitol in August 1814, British forces attacked Baltimore. Francis Scott Key, a poet-lawyer, witnessed the September 13-14 bombardment of Fort McHenry while under British guard on an American truce ship in the Patapsco River. Seeing his country?s flag still flying over the fort the next morning, he was moved to pen ?The Star-Spangled Banner.? The reverse design represents the site during the ?Defenders Day? celebration, considered the centerpiece annual event held at Fort McHenry. The fireworks symbolize the ?rocket?s red glare,? linking the fort to its historic past.

America the Beautiful Quarters Program
Investors can now choose bullion coins that honor some of our Nation's most treasured national parks and sites ? majestic places that truly make us "America the Beautiful."

About the Program
In 2010, the United States Mint began to issue 56 quarter-dollar coins featuring designs depicting national parks and other national sites as part of the United States Mint America the Beautiful Quarters? Program. 2013 marks the fourth year of the program and features the next 5 quarters.

Common Obverse
Each coin in the series features a common obverse (heads side) with the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, which has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model. Inscriptions are UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.

Release Schedule
Each year, the public will see five new national site designs depicted on the reverse (tails side) of America the Beautiful Quarters. The United States Mint will issue these quarters in the order in which the honored site was first established as a national site.

Silver Bullion Quarters
The United States Mint will also mint and issue unique silver bullion coins that are exact duplicates of each of the America the Beautiful Quarters. The bullion coins will be made of .999 fine silver, have a diameter of three inches and weigh five ounces. The fineness and weight will be edge-incused on the bullion coins. The United States Mint will issue these coins under the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin? Program.

United States Mint America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins are investment-grade silver bullion coins. Their weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the U.S. government.Uncirculated Coins for Collectors
The United States Mint also offers collectible, uncirculated versions of the popular gold and silver American Coins. All Uncirculated Coins carry the same stunning designs found on their Proof counterparts.

The term "uncirculated" refers to the specialized minting process used to create these coins. Although they are similar in appearance to Bullion Coins, these uncirculated coins are distinguished by the presence of a mint mark, indicating their production facility, and by the use of burnished coin blanks, which are hand-fed into specially-adapted coining presses one at a time.
