The area in Ohio was first established as a national monument in 1936 after having been under the control of the federal government for fifteen years. A large 352 foot doric column serves as the icon for the memorial and was constructed between the years of 1912-1915.

Each silver bullion coin honoring the site will be minted from five ounces of .999 fine silver to a diameter of three inches. The obverse will show a portrait of George Washington (first President of the United States) while the reverse will show a portion of the national memorial.

2013 America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins

A total of five America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins will be issued by the US Mint in 2013:

Issue Information

The US Mint will issue the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins on a similar schedule to the circulating America the Beautiful Quarter Dollars.

Release Date

A release date for the Perry’s Victory Silver Bullion Coin has not yet been announced by the US Mint.

Issue Price

The Mint will not sell the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins directly to the public. Instead, as with all the bullion products of the US Mint, a network of authorized purchasers will order the coins from the Mint, then resell them to the public for a small premium above the current spot price of the five ounces of silver contained within them.

U.S. Mint Production Facility

No mintmark should be present on these silver bullion coins as is typical with all bullion strikes. However, the Mint’s facility in Philadelphia received special equipment to strike these unique pieces.

Designer & Sculptor

John Flanagan designed the portrait of George Washington (first President of the United States) that is found on the obverse (heads side) of these coins originally for the 1932 circulating quarter dollar.

A scene depicting a portion of Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial will be shown on the reverse (tails side). As of yet, however, no official design information has been released by the Mint.
