2013 Perry's Victory International Peace Memorial Ohio Quarter

Coins-United States | AC coin$

Ohio became the 17th state to enter the Union on March 1, 1803. This US quarter evokes Oliver Hazard Perry and many others who gallantly fought in the 1812 war. Gorgeous Put-in-Bay area is a landmark and waterfront scenic spot for this selected Memorial site.

This memorial site in Ohio was established to honor those who fought in the Battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812 and to celebrate the long-lasting peace among Britain, Canada and the U.S. The memorial, a Doric column rising 352 feet over Lake Erie, is situated five miles from the longest undefended border in the world. The memorial bears the name of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry. Six naval officers (three American and three British) slain during the battle are buried under its rotunda. It was first established as a national site on March 3, 1919.

I'm sorry, what did you ask? I think it is fair that the content of blogs focus on coins. Don't you agree?

Thanks for your question. The coin is tied to the state, the state has a specific animal. Have I asked others or doubt about their choices and contents?
