On July 22, 2015, the U.S. Mint announced the final design for the Fort Moultrie, also known as Fort Sumter National Monument, quarters. The reverse shows a sergeant returning the regimental flag to the ramparts, as a British ship attacks in the distance.
The inscriptions on the coin’s reverse include the name of the site, fort moultrie; the location of the site, south carolina; the year of issue, 2016; and the motto, e pluribus unum.
This handsome quarter is a perfect match for the 2000 Statehood quarter, which also featured South Carolina, the park’s home state. As the 35th in the series overall, the Fort Moultrie quarter is the final issue for this year.
