The Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine is located in Maryland and is the birthplace of our country's national anthem, and was named for James McHenry, our Nation's second Secretary of War. In September of 1814 British forces bombarded Fort McHenry. Francis Scott Key who was a poet and lawyer witnessed the attack and upon seeing his country's flag still flying over the fort after the attach, was moved to write "The Star Spangled Banner."
The reverse design on this coin depicts Fort McHenry during a "Defenders Day" celebration which is an annual event and shows fireworks which symbolize the "rocket's red glare" from the Star Spangled Banner. These coins are legal tender and have a face value of 25 cents! The reverse of the quarter also includes the inscription “Fort McHenry, Maryland” “2013,” and “E Pluribus Unum.”
Our Fort McHenry Quarter S Mint Quarter Rolls are shipped in plastic quarter tubes and are taken from original U.S. Mint bags.
