The coin's reverse (tails) design features John Brown's Fort, the site of John Brown's last stand during his raid on the Harpers Ferry Armory. Inscriptions are "HARPERS FERRY," "WEST VIRGINIA," "JOHN BROWN'S FORT," "2016," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM." The coins are held in a durable plastic card with an image of the site. A certificate of authenticity is printed on the back of the card.
The Harpers Ferry quarter is the third America the Beautiful quarter to be released in 2016. The first two honored Shawnee National Forest in Illinois and Cumberland Gap National Historical Park in Kentucky.
Two 2016 America the Beautiful quarters will be launched into circulation later this year, one honoring North Dakota's Theodore Roosevelt National Park and another honoring Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) in South Carolina.
Other Harpers Ferry quarter products
The Harpers Ferry quarter was officially launched into general circulation during a June 8 ceremony at the park, which has parts located in three states—West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland.
A couple of days before that, on June 6, rolls and bags of the coins were made available to U.S. Mint customers.
There's a 5-ounce silver bullion version, right?
Yes, every America the Beautiful quarter has a 5-ounce silver version. Actually, there are two 5-ounce silver versions—one a bullion coin and the other an Uncirculated coin.
The Mint offers the Uncirculated version of the 5-ounce silver coins directly to the public, with pricing subject to potential change weekly based on metal price fluctuations. The bullion version is not available to everyone directly from the Mint. It is sold to authorized purchasers approved by the U.S. Mint to purchase bullion coins.
The Uncirculated 2016-P Harpers Ferry National Park 5-ounce silver quarter dollar will be available to U.S. Mint customers at noon Eastern Time on July 14.
