Frederick Douglass National Historic Site - District of Columbia, Washington D.C.

Established in 1962 and officially opened after a ten year renovation, the Frederick Douglass Site and his home Cedar Hill were opened to the public in 1972. Due to the small size of the house, tours are by ticket only but the site is an important historic landmark in the definition of the American identity. Frederick Douglass was a runaway slave who became a freeman, and spent his life fighting for justice and equal rights.

Born into slavery in 1818, he escaped as a teenager and became a leading voice in the abolitionist movement. Douglas' fame as an orator increased as he traveled and he went on to publish several books advocating for freedom and challenged racial segregation in the North, which were pertinent issues during the Civil War. Later in his life Douglass moved to Washington D.C. area to hold several political and civil positions. In 1877, he purchased the home today known as the Cedar House.

Most significantly, Douglass held positions of public office at a time when violence and fraud severely restricted African-American political activism. In 1895, Douglass passed away at the age of 77. The legend of Frederick Douglass has inspired people from around the world through his tireless struggle of activism, articulate words, and inclusive vision of humanity for all.

America The Beautiful 5 oz Coin Series (2010 – 2021)
In 2010, the United States Mint launched the America The Beautiful Quarter series, the mint’s first-ever 5 ounce coin and their largest Silver bullion coin to-date. The new quarter series includes a total of 56 quarter-dollar coins, each with a design of a National Park or National Site from one of the 50 states, five U.S. Territories and Washington D.C. The obverse design of each 5 oz Silver America The Beautiful coin duplicates the design of the America the Beautiful clad quarters used in circulation, except in greater detail. The mint makes two versions of the America the Beautiful 5 oz Silver coin: a Bullion version with a shiny prooflike finish made for investors and an Uncirculated, or Burnished, version with a matte-like finish made for collectors. The Burnished version features the "P" mintmark for the Philadelphia Mint and includes a U.S. Mint box and certificate of authenticity. The Bullion version does not have a mintmark and comes in a plastic capsule with no certificate of authenticity. The Bullion versions have higher mintages and are available to the public only through authorized bullion dealers like APMEX, while the Uncirculated versions have much lower mintages and are available through the U.S. Mint directly, as well as retailers like APMEX.

All America The Beautiful 5 oz Silver coins have the same obverse of George Washington in a restored version of the portrait created by John Flanagan for the 1932 Washington Quarter. The reverse of each America The Beautiful Quarter includes an individual design for each National Park or National Site. Unlike the reeded edge of the normal quarter coins in circulation, the America The Beautiful Silver bullion coins have a smooth edge inscribed with the coin specifications: .999 FINE SILVER 5.0 OUNCE.

The America The Beautiful program is authorized by Congress under Title II of the America’s Beautiful National Parks Quarter Dollar Coin Act of 2008.
