The final product the Mint has scheduled for 2017 is the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park 2017 Uncirculated Five Ounce Silver Coin from the Philadelphia Mint. There will be no household order or product limits, but the mintage limit is 25,000. The coin, and corresponding national park, honor the bravery and actions of Lieutenant Colonel George Rogers Clark and his men who fought valiantly during the American Revolution. Clark’s unexpected capture of Fort Sackville is still, to this day, considered one of the most monumental victories of the American Revolution. His capture of this fort also aided in the expansion of American explorers west of the Appalachians.
The reverse features George Rogers Clark leading his troops toward Fort Sackville. Inscriptions read GEORGE ROGERS CLARK, E PLURIBUS UNUM, 2017, and INDIANA.
The obverse features an effigy of George Washington with inscriptions reading clockwise UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, QUARTER DOLLAR, and LIBERTY. The “P” mint mark is also visible in the lower right.
The 99.9% silver coin is presented in a black, stylish presentation case. For more information on this coin and others offered by the United States Mint, please visit the website of the United States Mint.
