This beautiful 90% silver 2012 dollar recalls the origins of “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the War of 1812. Francis Scott Key, who was detained on a British ship during the shelling of Fort McHenry in 1814, was inspired to write the verse that became our national anthem. The obverse depicts Lady Liberty waving the 15-star, 15-stripe American flag that inspired Key, with Fort McHenry in the background. The reverse shows a modern American flag.
