This coin, featuring an image of Vicksburg National Military Park, is the fourth coin released in the 2011 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin Series. These coins are legal tender and have a nominal face value of 25 cents. Their fineness and weight are edge-incused on the coins.
The series features the 1932 portrait of George Washington by John Flanagan, restored to bring out subtle details and the beauty of the original model, on the obverse. The reverse depicts the U.S.S. Cairo on the Yazoo River as it would have been seen when it served the U.S. Navy during the Civil War.
These striking numismatic collectibles are produced with an uncirculated finish and display a "P" mint mark for the United States Mint at Philadelphia, where they are struck. The coins are encapsulated, set in a protective outer box, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. These coins are produced in limited quantities.
