2013 Perrys Victory America the Beautiful Quarter

The Federal Reserve Bank system is scheduled to issue the quarters into general circulation beginning on April 1, 2013. On or near that same date, the US Mint will likely also begin offering numismatic products containing the strike including bags and rolls.

Located on the reverse of each Perry's Victory Quarter is a design emblematic of Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial found in the state of Ohio. The memorial was initially constructed under the direction of a multi-state commission with initial work commencing in 1912 and completion occurring in 1915.

It was created to acknowledge the victory of forces under Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry over British naval forces during the Battle of Lake Erie fought during the War of 1812. It also commemorates the lasting peace enjoyed between the opposing forces since that war.

The site came under the direct control of the federal government in 1936 as a national monument. It was redesignated a national memorial in 1976.

The Perry's Victory Quarters are the seventeenth strikes to appear in the Mint's America the Beautiful Quarters series. This series will include a total of fifty-six new releases when completed in 2021. The strikes are issued at a rate of five per year with the first released back in 2010.

Perry's Victory Quarter Design

The obverse of all America the Beautiful Quarters include a portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States. The portrait was originally designed by artist John Flanagan and has appeared (with minor variations) on the obverse of all circulating quarters since 1932. Obverse inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, QUARTER DOLLAR, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and the mintmark.

Showcased on the reverse of the Perry's Victory Quarter is a design emblematic of Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial. In the foreground, a depiction of the statue of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry is seen as it appears at the memorial. The doric column of the peace memorial is shown off in the distance. Reverse inscriptions include PERRY'S VICTORY, OHIO, 2013, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.  The reverse was designed and executed by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart.
