2016 / America the Beautiful Quarter BU / Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument)
America the Beautiful Quarters capture the breathtaking beauty of America’s natural landscapes that have inspired countless poets, adventurers, and artists. The U.S. is honoring our Nation's national parks and sites on quarters featuring five new designs each year.
Released in 2016, the Fort Moultrie (Fort Sumter National Monument) Quarter honors the site where American Revolutionary War forces successfully defended the port of Charleston, South Carolina from an attack by the British. The date was June 28, 1776 when the British started attacking the fort, which was not yet complete. Constructed of soft Palmetto Logs, the British cannon balls failed to cause any significant damage to the structure as they reportedly even bounced off of the fort.
