Why purchase this 2013 Fort McHenry 5 oz. Silver Quarter?

Maryland's Fort McHenry was established as a national park in 1925 to preserve the location of the 1814 Battle of Baltimore, an event which served as the inspiration to the famous words penned by Francis Scott Key. Struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, this 19th release of the U.S. Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters series is dedicated to the Fort.

Fireworks Celebration

Designed by Joseph Menna, the reverse features a view of the Fort during a magnificent display of fireworks representing the 'rocket's red glare'. Inscribed "FORT McHENRY," "MARYLAND," "2013" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

John Flanagan's 1932 image of George Washington adorns the obverse. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "QUARTER DOLLAR," with ".999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE" on the smooth edge.
