Details & Specifications

The 2016 5 oz Silver ATB Harpers Ferry National Historical Park coin commemorates the site of one of the most pivotal events leading to the Civil War. The Thomas Hipschen design of the Harpers Ferry Arsenal's fire engine house is titled "John Brown's Fort".

The engine house is prominently featured on the reverse of the coin, with buildings of the Harpers Ferry Historic District behind. The title "John Brown's Fort" appears directly under the building. Surrounding the scene are the inscriptions "Harpers Ferry" above, the year-date 2016 below, "West Virginia" to the left, and "E Pluribus Unum" to the right.

The obverse is a modified Washington Quarter design, to include the mandatory phrase "In God We Trust" that is usually on the reverse of US coins.

The 2016 America the Beautiful Harpers Ferry National Historical Park 5 oz silver coin is made from 5 troy ounces of .999 fine silver. The coin's weight and purity are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.

About John Brown's Fort:

The building gained this name in 1859 after the radical abolitionist John Brown and 21 followers attacked the US Army arsenal at Harpers Ferry, hoping to use the weapons stored there to arm a nationwide slave rebellion. The local slaves refused to rise up, and the town militia soon forced Brown and his men to retreat with their hostages to the combined guard house and fire engine house near the Arsenal's gate.

A detachment of US Marines led by cavalry officer Lt. Col. Robert E.Lee were sent to Harpers Ferry, where they stormed the engine house and captured Brown in a bloody fight. John Brown was convicted of treason and murder, and hanged. His actions and death heightened emotions on both sides of the slavery debate, hastening the start of the American Civil War.

Lt. Colonel Robert E. Lee, and his second in command at Harpers Ferry, Lt. J.E.B. Stuart, would both resign from the Army when Virginia seceded from the Union, and become famous Confederate generals.
