Why purchase this 5 oz. Silver Fort Moultrie America the Beautiful Coin?
The U.S. Mint introduced the America the Beautiful Quarter series in 2010, along with the Mint's first ever 5 oz. silver coin. This 76.2 mm diameter 2016-P 5 oz. Silver Fort Moultrie Specimen Quarter, the 35th release in the series, was struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver. South Carolina's Fort Moultrie was named for its commander, Colonel William Moultrie, whose defense of the fortification in June of 1776 saved Charleston from British occupation.
A pivotal moment in history
The reverse, designed by Richard Scott and Joseph Menna, depicts Sergeant William Jasper returning the regimental flag to the ramparts while under fire from a British ship. Inscribed "FORT MOULTRIE," "SOUTH CAROLINA," "2016," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
The obverse portrait of George Washington was sculpted in 1932 by John Flanagan. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "QUARTER DOLLAR."
Specimen 70 with signed label
This 2016-P 5 oz. Silver America the Beautiful Fort Moultrie coin is graded a perfect Specimen 70 by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). This Specimen coin is struck especially for collectors with a satin-like finish, carrying a "P" Mint mark to differentiate it from the higher mintage bullion strike.
