The Silver 5-oz ATB 2016 Fort Moultrie Coin commemorates the valiant effort of American troops that defended the unfinished Fort Sullivan from British troops under almost impossible conditions. It also celebrates South Carolina, the American Revolutionary War, and the city of Charleston.

The reverse of the coin features an American Revolutionary Sergeant William Jasper, a distinguished American soldier in the Revolutionary War, recovering the South Carolina Liberty flag after it was shot away during the Battle of Sullivan’s Island. The image also features a British warship attacking from a distance.

The obverse features a portrait in the left profile of George Washington, the first American president and one of the founding fathers. It’s accompanied by the word “Liberty," and the U.S. motto “In God We Trust." It was designed by John Flanagan in 1932 and introduced by Congress as a replacement to the Standing Liberty quarter.

About Fort Moultrie

Fort Moultrie is a series of fortifications on Sullivan’s Island, built to protect the city of Charleston in South Carolina. The first fort was named Fort Sullivan, it was designed to defend the city’s harbor and it was built of palmetto logs, which inspired the flag and nickname of South Carolina, also known as “The Palmetto State." It was later renamed Fort Moultrie, after U.S. patriot commander in the Battle of Sullivan’s Island, General William Moultrie.

Colonel Moultrie took command of Sullivan’s Island on March 2, 1776, along with a garrison of 413 men of the 2nd South Carolina Regiment of Infantry, and 22 men of the 4th South Carolina Regiment. When he took over, the island included a fort at the southern tip which was still under construction. But by June 28, when the British attack commenced, only the front (southeast and southeast curtain walls and bastions) was complete. British Admiral Sir Peter Parker attacked fort Sullivan with nine warships under his command, near the beginning of the American Revolutionary War. The unfinished fort managed to withstand the bombardment, thanks to the soft palmetto logs which absorbed the shots; even cannonball shots bounced off the walls of the structure. Commander William Moultrie, along with his troops, managed to withstand the day-long battle that ended with the heavily damaged British warships being fought back and departing the area.

Thanks to the victory of the troops under the command of William Moultrie, the fort was renamed Fort Moultrie in his honor. Charleston locals celebrate “Carolina Day” to commemorate the bravery the American defenders showed at the battle. During the battle, commander Moultrie flew a flag of his own design, which was authorized by the colonial government. It was later named the Moultrie flag or Liberty flag. The flag became iconic to the Revolution of the South.

In the end, the British managed to capture Fort Moultrie in spring 1780, as part of the Siege of Charleston. Nevertheless, the colonists managed to win the war, and the fort was taken back in 1782.

However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee.
