- Product Description
Celebrating the 47-day Siege of Vicksburg, the 2011 quarter features the U.S.S. Cairo. Although sunk during the pivotal battle, the Cairo was eventually raised. It is pictured on the reverse of the quarter as it would have been seen while in all her battle glory. Also written along the quarter’s edge are the words VICKSBURG, MISSISSIPPI, 2011, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
Many of the nation's collectors and American history enthusiasts seek the added value of a pristine uncirculated quarter from each mint. As circulated quarters continue to be difficult to find, these collections will become a premium item. The Vicksburg National Military Park Quarter is scheduled to be released in August. It will be the fourth of the 2011 National Parks Quarters. Our collections feature both a P and D minted quarter affixed to a 5"x5" trifold card packed with interesting information, fascinating history and vibrant images. These collections make the entire series fit seamlessly together creating a comprehensive and valuable treasure for families and collectors alike.
