2015 Saratoga National Historical Park Quarters become available on Monday, November 30, 2015.
Produced and sold by the United States Mint, products with the fifth and final 2015-dated America the Beautiful Quarter includes single rolls, two-roll sets and bags.
Shown on the reverse of each new quarter is a design emblematic of Saratoga National Historical Park of New York. United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) artist Barbara Fox created the design to portray a pivotal moment in the American Revolutionary War in which General John Burgoyne surrendered his sword to General Horatio Gates.
The event happened in the autumn of 1777 when American forces under the command of Gates defeated the British army in the area. United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Renata Gordon sculpted the image that also includes the inscriptions of BRITISH SURRENDER 1777, SARATOGA, NEW YORK, 2015, and E PLURIBUS UNUM.
Saratoga quarter products available on the 30th include coins struck at U.S. Mint facilities in Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco. The last of these sites, the San Francisco Mint, produces quarters only for collector products such as these rolls and bags. Quarters from this facility are not in general circulation. Denver and Philadelphia quarters, on the other hand, are.
