US Mint America the Beautiful Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial 3-Coin Set
The seventeenth coin in the US Mint’s popular America the Beautiful quarters series, this 2013 Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial America the Beautiful three-coin set depicts the statue of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry in front of the Peace Memorial on the reverse of three quarters.
The set contains two uncirculated Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial quarters - one each from the Philadelphia US Mint and the Denver US Mint, as well as one proof-quality coin from the San Francisco US Mint. Proof-struck coins, commonly referred to as specimen-minted, are the most highly revered of all collectible coins. Coin aficionados devoutly pursue this elite class of coin because of its exceptional numismatic value and unmatched beauty.
An equally ideal gift item for fans of our national parks – especially Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial – and for beginning coin collectors by displaying the same item from three mints sampled by uncirculated and proof, each set mounts the coins on a durable plastic card with a description and image of the national memorial and a Certificate of Authenticity on the back.
In all, there will be up to 56 specially designed numismatic offerings between 2010 and 2021.
After a harrowing battle with the British on Lake Erie, Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry punctuated his triumph with the now famous phrase, “We have met the enemy and they are ours.” Established in 1936, the memorial – towering 352 feet over Lake Erie – celebrates the lasting peace between the United States, Canada, and Great Britain that commenced with the end of the War of 1812. Six are buried beneath – three Americans and three British – near the longest undefended border in the world. It was first established as a national site on March 3, 1919.
