2013-S Perry’s Victory Quarter Singles - Uncirculated Condition
Though the San Francisco Mint Perry's Victory Quarters were struck as Business Strikes, none of these quarters were issued for circulation, insuring their desirability for years to come.
Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial was established as part of the National Park Service by Franklin D. Roosevelt in June of 1936. The Memorial was constructed between 1912 and 1915 to honor those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie, during the War of 1812, and to celebrate the long-lasting peace between Britain, Canada, and the U.S. The monument, a large Doric column, stands 352 feet tall over Lake Erie and is only 5 miles from the undefended Canadian border. The memorial not only honors Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry, but also three American and three British naval officers who were slain in the battle. While Perry is buried in Newport, RI the naval officers are buried at the memorial. It was first named as a national site on March 3, 1919.
The reverse of the quarter features a statue of Perry and an image of the Peace Memorial in the background. Also included are the inscriptions, “Perry’s Victory, Ohio,” “2013,” and “E Pluribus Unum.”
