Why add this superbly graded 2021-P Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site 5 oz. Silver Specimen quarter to your collection?
This exciting silver specimen quarter represents the conclusion of the U.S. Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters series, which was launched in 2010 to honor the country's national parks, memorials and historic locations. This 56th release of the series is dedicated to Alabama's Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site. During a time in the nation's history wrought with segregation and prejudice, the Tuskegee complex was the only World War II era training facility for African-American pilots of the U.S. Army Air Corps.
Imagery Depicting a Courageous Pilot
Obverse: The likeness of George Washington created by acclaimed American sculptor John Flanagan in 1932 is centered on the obverse. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "QUARTER DOLLAR" and Philadelphia's "P" Mint mark.
Reverse: The reverse design depicts a pilot, two airborne P-51 Mustangs and the Moton Field control tower beneath the inscription "THEY FOUGHT TWO WARS." The phrase is indicative of the fierce dedication of the Airmen, in the overseas battle against fascism and the struggle with local discrimination. Inscribed "TUSKEGEE AIRMEN," "ALABAMA," "2021" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM," with ".999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE" on the coin's edge.
