5 oz 2011 America the Beautiful Vicksburg National Park Silver Coin | United States Mint
Buy with Confidence
The Vicksburg national memorial is a park which commemorates the Battle of Vicksburg, one of the Civil War's bloodiest and most pivotal battles. The conflict, which spanned 47 days, was crucial in establishing a numerical advantage for the Union while simultaneously destabilizing the confederacy. The battle proved to be pivotal in turning the tide of the civil war, allowing the Union army to take complete control of the Mississippi River, thus cutting off a crucial artery of supplies and men to the confederate efforts. The monumental efforts on both sides saw approximately 4000 men perish, with Vicksburg being immortalized as the site of reverence in memory of the brave souls who participated. Vicksburg national park spans 32 kilometers of monuments and recreated battlefields, including half a kilometer devoted to a cemetery for the fallen soldiers, and is impeccably preserved and maintained. As the fifth release in the immensely popular America the Beautiful series, this Vicksburg National Park silver coin is an homage to one of the most decisive battles in the American Civil war. Illustrated on 999 silver, this commemorative coin has a minimal mintage of only 58,100 coins making it highly collectible and available to you today at the lowest price online!
The meticulous attention to detail is what makes this series so highly sought-after. On the reverse side, the U.S.S. Cairo is brought to life with the use of expert texturing. The U.S.S. Cairo was commissioned as a member of the Union Army's Western Gunboat Flotilla on both the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. The vessel was salvaged and restored and presently features as one of the main attractions of Vicksburg National Military Park. The image is encapsulated by the Military Park's title and location, in addition to the year of issue. The quintessential American slogan, "E Pluribus Unum," Latin for "of many, one" is also included in the outer ring.
On the obverse is the likeness of the first President of The United States and founding father, George Washington. The nation of issue serves as the legend, while the mottos, "Liberty" and "In God we Trust," are seen in the field which remains blank.
