Description

Commemorate the Battle of Saratoga by ordering this 2015 5 oz America the Beautiful Silver Coin from Provident Metals. Each coin contains five troy ounces of .999 fine silver and was struck by the U.S. Mint as part of its Silver Bullion Coin Program, which showcases many of the most stunning landscapes in the United States of America.

The reverse design of this 5 oz Silver Coin depicts the moment of surrender by the British army at the Battle of Saratoga in 1777. The Battle of Saratoga was a pivotal point in the American Revolutionary War; it renewed hope of independence, and has been called the turning point of the American Revolutionary War. The scene on the reverse displays the moment General Horatio Gates accepted the sword of surrender from General John Burgoyne of the British army. “British Surrender 1777” is inscribed within the image. Other inscriptions read “SARATOGA,” “NEW YORK,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “2015.”

George Washington’s familiar portrait resides on the obverse, just as it does on each America the Beautiful 5 oz Silver Coin. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “QUARTER DOLLAR,” “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” are engraved.
