The final release in the 2016 series of America the Beautiful coin series is the Fort Moultrie at Fort Sumter National Monument 5 oz Silver Coin. As with previous releases, the Fort Sumter ATB consists of five troy ounces of .999 fine silver, and is minted at West Point by the US Mint. As these silver coins are backed by the US government, recognized as legal tender, and struck with strict production quality and metal purity specifications, each silver ATB may be included in a precious metals IRA.
The America the Beautiful coin series features many of the United States' National Parks, Forests, and Memorials. The US Mint began producing 5 oz Silver ATB coins in 2010, and releases 5 new designs each year.
The reverse of this 5 oz Silver ATB features Sergeant William Jasper returning the regimental flag to the ramparts of Fort Moultrie while under attack from a British naval ship. Inscriptions include “FORT MOULTRIE”, “2016”, “SOUTH CAROLINA”, “E PLURIBUS UNUM”.
The obverse of this 5 oz silver coin features the right facing profile of President George Washington with the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “LIBERTY”, “IN GOD WE TRUST”, and “LIBERTY”.
