The Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) 2016 Uncirculated Five Ounce Silver Coin is composed of 99.9% silver.

The 2016 America the Beautiful Five Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin™ – Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) (South Carolina) is the final release of 2016 in the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program. The reverse (tails) design features Sergeant William Jasper returning the regimental flag to the ramparts while under attack from a British ship. Inscriptions are “FORT MOULTRIE,” “SOUTH CAROLINA,” “2016,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

Fort Moultrie, the first fort on Sullivan’s Island, was still incomplete when Commodore Sir Peter Parker and nine warships attacked it on June 28, 1776. After a nine–hour battle, the ships were forced to retire. Charleston was saved from British occupation, and the fort was named in honor of its commander, Colonel William Moultrie. In 1780, the British finally captured Charleston, abandoning it only on the advent of peace. After the Revolutionary War, Fort Moultrie was neglected, and by 1791, little of it remained. Then, in 1793, war broke out between England and France. A second Fort Moultrie, one of 20 new forts along the Atlantic coast, was completed in 1798. It, too, suffered from neglect and was finally destroyed by a hurricane in 1804. In 1809, a new, brick, third Fort Moultrie stood on Sullivan’s Island. It was established as a national site in 1948.
