Each coin in this series features a common obverse (heads) with the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, which has been restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model.
The 2013 reverse (tails) of these coins honors the sites below with the following designs:
White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire:
This design depicts Mt. Chocorua, the easternmost peak of the Sandwich Range, framed by birch trees. It is an iconic view of the White Mountain National Forest system lands. Inscriptions are “WHITE MOUNTAIN,” “NEW HAMPSHIRE,” “2013,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial in Ohio:
This design features the statue of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry with the Peace Memorial located in the distance. The memorial is one of the tallest of its kind in the U.S. Inscriptions are “PERRY’S VICTORY,” “OHIO,” “2013,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
Great Basin National Park in Nevada:
This design features the beauty and unique qualities of a single Bristlecone Pine tree and shows the rocky glacial moraines where the trees grow. These trees grow at higher elevation in the park than other trees and are some of the world’s oldest. The park contains numerous Bristlecone Pine groves with trees older than 4,000 years. Inscriptions are “GREAT BASIN,” “NEVADA,” “2013,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine in Maryland:
This design represents the site during the Defenders’ Day celebration, considered the centerpiece annual event held at Fort McHenry. The fireworks symbolize the rocket’s red glare, linking the fort to its historic past. Inscriptions are “FORT McHENRY,” “MARYLAND,” “2013,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota:
This design was inspired by photos of men who are adding the final details to Thomas Jefferson’s face. Mount Rushmore was featured on three 1991 Mount Rushmore Golden Anniversary Commemorative Coins and on the 2006 South Dakota quarter issued under the 50 State Quarters® Program. This new design is distinctly different and offers a unique and educational perspective on how Mount Rushmore was created and sculpted. Inscriptions are “MOUNT RUSHMORE,” “SOUTH DAKOTA,” “2013,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
