U.S. Mint Unveils the New Saratoga Quarter Coin


The New Saratoga Quarter Coin was unveiled today, in Schuylerville NY, location of the Surrender of the British Army, which occurred in 1777.

The Ceremony was held at Schuylerville High School, in Saratoga County, New York. The Saratoga Battlefield is just 10 miles South of the location of the Surrender.

Watch our video from the Ceremony….

At Saratoga in the autumn of 1777, American forces met, defeated and forced a major British army to surrender.  This crucial American victory renewed patriots’ hopes for independence, secured essential foreign recognition and support, and forever changed the face of the world.  The battlefield, a monument to the fallen and the restored country house of American General Philip Schuyler make up the three sites of Saratoga National Historical Park.  It was established as a national site in 1938.

The design depicts a close-up of the moment General John Burgoyne surrendered his sword to General Horatio Gates, a turning point many believe marked the ‘beginning of the end of the American Revolutionary War.’  Inscriptions are “BRITISH SURRENDER 1777,” “SARATOGA,” “NEW YORK,” “2015” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”  Design candidates were developed in consultation with representatives of Saratoga National Historical Park.
