2013 5 oz Silver ATB Perry's Victory and Peace Park, Ohio. The second is the 2013 Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial Quarter for Ohio. Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial Quarters feature a reverse design by Don Everhart. As the coin image above reflects, it depicts the statue of Master Commandant Oliver Hazard Perry with the Peace Memorial located in the distance. Inscriptions include PERRY’S VICTORY, OHIO, 2013 and E PLURIBUS UNUM. While it commemorates a battle, the memorial truly honors the concept of peace. The monument, touted as the world’s most massive doric column is located in Put-in-Bay, Ohio and stands an eye-catching 352 feet high. The column was originally constructed from 1912-1915 to commemorate the Battle of Lake Erie which occurred during the War of 1812 between the United States and the British empire. During the battle, nine US vessels successfully captured six British vessels insuring US control of Lake Erie. Lasting peace was at the heart of the construction of the memorial. It celebrates the close bond between the United States, Great Britain and Canada that has occurred since the War of 1812. It is said that beneath the floor of the monument the remains of three American officers and three British officers are buried. It is estimated that the massive column weighs over 36,800,000 pounds. All of this rests on a concrete ring that is 9.5 feet thick and 12 feet deep. The column underwent a massive refurbishment starting in 2009 that is expected to last three years. This multi-million dollar project was the result of concerns over the integrity of the structure after a 500 pound piece of granite fell from the observation deck.
