America the Beautiful is a 56-coin series from the US Mint that celebrates the national monuments, parks, and forests of the 50 US states and the nation’s five overseas territories, as well as the federal capital of Washington DC.
Saratoga National Historical Park is located in the state of New York and was the site of the first major American victory of the Revolutionary War. General Horatio Gates and the Continental Army defeated General John Burgoyne and the British Army, handing the British their first major defeat of the conflict and convincing the French to lend aid to the American cause.
On the reverse side of the coin is the image of a sword being handed over as a sign of surrender. The obverse side of the coin features the left-profile portrait of President George Washington, the nation’s first elected president and leader of the Continental Army. This particular design is found on all American quarters and was created in 1932.
