WASHINGTON — The United States Mint will accept orders for product options containing circulating quality quarters honoring Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial in Ohio beginning April 1 at noon Eastern Time (ET). The new quarter is the 17th coin released in the United States Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters Program, a multi–year initiative to celebrate our national parks and other national sites. The coin’s reverse (tails side) design depicts the statue of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry with the Peace Memorial located in the distance. Inscriptions are PERRY’S VICTORY, OHIO, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
The coins in the bags and rolls were struck on the main production floors of the United States Mint’s facilities at Denver, Philadelphia and San Francisco, while the three–roll set contains coins from all three facilities. Unlike the “P” and “D” mint mark quarters, those with the “S” mint mark will not be released into circulation. Product options and pricing are as follows:
|PRODUCT CODE||PRODUCT OPTION||MINT MARK||PRICE|
|WD4||Two–Roll Set (40 coins per roll)||“P” and “D”||$32.95|
|WD1, WD2, WD3||100–Coin Bag||“P,” “D” or “S”||$34.95|
|WD5||Single Roll (40 coins)||“S”||$18.95|
|TC3||Three–Roll Set||“P,” “D” and “S”||$46.95|
The special numismatic wrapping for the coin rolls displays the name “Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial,” the abbreviation “OH” for Ohio; “$10,” the face value of its contents; and “P,” “D.” or “S” for the mint of origin. The canvas bags have a tag with “Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial,” “OH” and “P,” “D” or “S.”
