The US Mint has issued several coins
commemorating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812.  We are pleased to announce that a limited
number of these coins will be available for purchase in the Keeper’s House gift
shop.  The silver coin proof is $54.95 to
purchase.  There is a mintage limit of
500,000 through the US Mint.

The Star-Spangled Banner Commemorative
Coin Act was signed into law on August 16, 2010 in commemoration of the
bicentennial of the writing of our national anthem.  According to the law, the designs shall be
emblematic of the War of 1812, particularly the Battle of Baltimore that formed
the basis for the lyrics of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Visit the gift shop to buy your coin
before they are all gone!
