PRODUCT DETAILS:

2016 Harpers Ferry Quarter Coin - S Mint - (UNC) Brilliant Uncirculated 

COIN HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Released on 6/6/2016.
  • The obverse shows a slightly modified version of the original Washington Quarter. The mint moved some of the wording previously found on the reverse to the obverse in order to make more room for the reverse design for each state. You'll find "United States of America," "In God We Trust," "Liberty," and "Quarter Dollar" all spelled out on the obverse of the quarter as well as the coin's mint mark. 
  • The reverse of the coin depicts John Brown's Fort, where John Brown’s last stand, during his raid on the Harpers Ferry Armory, took place.
  • The 5 National Parks Released in 2016 were Shawnee National Forest in Illinois, Cumberland Gap National Historical Park in Kentucky, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia, Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota and Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter) National Monument in South Carolina.
  • Sovereign coins minted at the San Francisco Branch of the U.S. Mint and backed by the United States government, each with a face value of $0.25. The America the Beautiful Quarter Program began in 2010, but Uncirculated Quarters were not minted at San Francisco until 2012.


All coins come in protective plastic. Orders of 40 or more may ship in tubes. 

Located mainly in West Virginia, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park spans about 3,500 acres and was originally planned as a memorial to John Brown, an American abolitionist. Brown, trying to start a slave liberation movement, fronted an attack on the federal armory at Harpers Ferry to attempt to arm his men and some local slaves. His efforts were unsuccessful as everyone involved was either killed, injured, or captured within a few days time. Brown was tried for treason, found guilty, and received the death penalty. He was the first person ever in U.S. history to be found guilty and convicted of treason. In 1944, faced with opposition from various parties, the U.S. Department of the Interior decided to name the park Harpers Ferry National Monument instead of memorializing Brown. It was later deemed a National Park in 1963 by U.S. Congress. Today, the park is a treasure trove of museums, exhibits, historical buildings, fields, forests, farms, and natural areas that both the outdoor enthusiast and historian alike will enjoy.  The park offers historic trade workshops, guided tours, living history events, as well as trails and waterways for hiking, fishing, kayaking, and swimming.
