This 2016 Harpers Ferry National Historical Park of West Virginia quarter is minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia and has never been placed into circulation.
The 33rd coin released in 2016 as part of the United States Mint’s America the Beautiful Quarters® Program commemorates Harpers Ferry National Historical Park in West Virginia.
Thomas Hipschen designed the reverse or tails side of the park quarter, with Phebe Hemphill sculpting it. John Brown’s Fort is depicted. The site is his last stand during his raid on the Harpers Ferry Armory. Around the fort are inscriptions: HARPERS FERRY, WEST VIRGINIA, JOHN BROWN’S FORT, 2016 and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
Obverses or heads side of America the Beautiful Quarters share the same design, a portrait of George Washington as created by John Flanagan.
