2012-P PCGS MS70 Star-Spangled Banner Silver Dollar

The War of 1812 has been called the "second War of Independence," because it forged national character and demonstrated that Americans would unite not only to win liberty, but to keep it. After the battle, the young flag, with 15 stars and broad stripes, waved in defiance. The courage Francis Scott Key witnessed inspired him to write the words sung today as the National Anthem. Fort McHenry, home of the "Star-Spangled Banner," still flies the 15-star flag every hour of every day, above its ramparts.Source

In 2012, a coin was minted to commemorate the War of 1812. It was the Battle of Baltimore in Fort McHeny.

2012-P PCGS MS70 Star-Spangled Banner

In the obverse of the coin is Lady Liberty waving the flag and in the background is Fort McHenry.

During the Battle of Baltimore, American patriots defended the fort with their canons as the British bombarded it for 25 hours. The attack on Fort McHenry failed.

The flag held by Lady Liberty is a 15-star and 15-stripe flag. This side of the coin is designed by Joel Iskowitz and Phebe Hemphill is the sculptor. The obverse has the words Liberty, In God We Trust, the year 2012, and the P for Philadelphia mint.

The reverse of the coin was designed by William Brugard III and Don Everhart is the sculptor. It shows the current American flag, waving gloriously. It has the words One Dollar, E Pluribus Unum, and United States of America engraved.
