War of 1812 Bicentennial Commission Offers Star-Spangled Coins at Expo

This month, the State of Maryland kicked-off its three-year celebration of our nation’s victory over Great Britain in the War of 1812.

A series of events, beginning with Sailabration (see photo on page one) commemorate the State’s unique contributions to the defense of the nation and the birth of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” penned by Francis Scott Key and inspired by the dramatic events in and around Baltimore.

To honor the Bicentennial, the U.S. Mint has struck gold and silver Proof and Uncirculated commemoratives. You can view these beautifully designed coins, and pick up a few of your own at a special exhibit right here on the Bourse Floor.

Drop by the Commission’s booth, near the Information Booth, and see them for yourself.
