The two associated programs that include the Perry's Victory Silver Coins are the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin® Program and America the Beautiful Five Ounce Uncirculated Coin™ Program. Both feature coins struck from five ounces of .999 fine silver with diameters of three inches.

The US Mint strikes the bullion coins for investors. Like other bullion products, these coins are sold through the Mint's network of authorized purchasers. The purchasers obtain the coins in bulk from the Mint, then resell them to the public for a small premium above the market price of the five ounces of silver they contain.

This differs from the uncirculated coins which are considered numismatic items. They are initially sold directly to the public by the US Mint. As such, a much larger premium is generally associated with them over and above any melt value.

In order to differentiate between the two series, a 'P' mintmark is included on the uncirculated coins to indicate it was struck at the US Mint's facility in Philadelphia. The bullion coins are also struck in Philadelphia but contain no mintmark.

Both series feature obverse and reverse imagery originally created for a third US Mint series - the America the Beautiful Quarters® Program.

Perry's Victory Silver Coin Design

Shown on the obverse of each America the Beautiful related coin is the same portrait of George Washington, by John Flanagan. This portrait was originally designed for the 1932 circulating quarter dollar and has appeared on quarters, with minor variations, ever since. Obverse inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, LIBERTY, IN GOD WE TRUST and QUARTER DOLLAR.

The reverse of the Perry's Victory Coin contains the design emblematic of the national site. It depicts a closer view of the statue of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry with the Peace Memorial column located in the distance. Inscriptions are PERRY'S VICTORY, OHIO, 2013, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.  The reverse was designed and executed by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Don Everhart.
