Located on Sullivan’s Island in the harbor of Charleston, South Carolina, Fort Moultrie has played an important role in American history since the days of the Revolutionary War. It successfully defended against British forces during that war and also stood as a defense during the American Civil War.

The US Mint strikes each America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin from five ounces of .999 fine silver. They have a diameter of three inches and feature edge incused lettering which shows the coins weight and fineness.

Issue Price

America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins will not be sold directly to the public by the US Mint. As with all bullion products, the Mint uses a network of authorized purchasers which resells the strikes to the public for a small premium above the current spot price of the precious metal contained within them.

U.S. Mint Production Facility

The only location with the equipment to strike the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins is the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia. However, no mintmark is typically present on bullion strikes.

Designer & Sculptor

John Flanagan designed the portrait of George Washington that will be featured on the obverse (heads side) of the America the Beautiful Coins. The design of the first President of the United States was first seen on the circulating quarter dollar in 1932.

The reverse (tails side) of the Fort Moultrie Coin will showcase a portion of the monument.
