About this Product
 
The United States America the Beautiful Quarter Program



The 2011 Vickburg Quarter is the NINTH coin in the United States America the Beautiful Quarter Series. The series began in 2010 and honors one national park from each of the 50 States as well as Washington D.C. and the five territories.

This second year of releases will include: Gettysburg, Glacier, Olympic, Vicksburg & Chickasaw. .

There will be 5 Quarters released each year. Like the State Quarters, each quarter will be minted from the Philadelphia and the Denver Mint. The obverse design showing George Washington remains unchanged, while the reverse design reflects the National Park that is being honored.

The unique reverse design on the Vicksburg National MilitaryPark Quarter features the USS Cairo as it would have appeared as a U.S. Navy warship in the Civil War. An ironclad gunboat, the ship was used on the Ohio and Mississippi RIvers and their tributaries in the early part of the Civil War. She joined a Union expedition on the Yazoo RIver near Vicksburg, Mississippi, and on December 12 she struck a mine and sank. The wreck was salvaged in 1964 and was put on permanent display at Vicksburg National Military Park . The Vicksburg National Military Park Quarter was released by the U.S. Mint in August 2011.

This is the Philadelphia Minted, uncirculated quarter. It will be encapsulated to protect its condition.
